About this book


Despite its strategic focus, supply management has not yet gained due recognition for its value contribution since it can still not reliably show its effects on the corporate bottom line. Based on practice-oriented and practice-relevant research methods, Anna Quitt, therefore, designs an integrated process for measuring supply management’s budget effects and develops Return on Spend as an innovative financial effectiveness indicator. She shows that transparent savings measurement needs to start with supply management’s budgeting integration to overcome current measurement deficiencies and to establish supply management as an equal business partner.
