The 64 squares in the Purchasing Chessboard provide a rich reservoir of methods that can be applied either individually or combined to help companies reduce costs and increase value with suppliers. Because many of these methods are not customarily used by procurement, the Purchasing Chessboard is also the perfect tool for helping buyers to think and act outside the box and find new solutions.
All royalties from The Purchasing Chessboard book sales go to grants supporting the academic achievement of outstanding procurement talent. If you consider yourself qualified for this grant or if you want to sponsor a candidate, please contact us.
