     What is purchasing…and why should it
     be strategic?

     The process by which an organization
       contracts with third parties to obtain the
       goods and services required to fulfill its
       business objectives in the most timely and
       cost effective manner

        World class purchasing is not about placing orders.
        Involvement in concept, design, justification,
         influencing specifications, and requirements
        Sharing in-depth knowledge of the market
        Look at the future of the organization and change the
         supply market to your advantage
        Then what is Purchasing Strategy?

     A: Early purchasing involvement

     Many buyers claim difficulty in being involved
       early enough in the purchasing process.
       Whose fault is it?
      Why don‟t we wait for the requisition?
      Do you wait to be invited to participate?
      What do you do?
      What action do you need to take?

17                                     Joseph Ogachi MCIPS, MBA
     .. A proactive action to take.

        Review all revenue and capital budgets
        Identify areas of large expenditure
        Initiate debate on their purchase
        While showing your value adding expertise
        Regularly visit those who normally initiate high
        Gain their confidence by talking about their problems
         and opportunities

     .. A proactive action..

        Identify areas of disaffection in their client base and
         offer opportunities and solutions
        What if there are no areas of dis-affection?
        Senior secretaries could tip you off when their
         executives are planning to meet a supplier
        Then send a briefing memo
        Seek invitations to all key planning meetings
        This is better than sitting waiting for a PR

     No amount of supply planning and
     requirements identification can
     compensate for lack of thought
     regarding behaviour when the buyer
     communicates with the supplier

     B: Supplier-buyer conditioning

     Developing strategies to attract good
       productive suppliers is very important

     Sales people are also developing strategies of
       influencing the buyer to ensure they gain

21                                    Joseph Ogachi MCIPS, MBA

        Good sales staff are trained to condition the
         behaviour of buyers so that they could
         behave in a predictable way which is
         favourable to the seller
        Few buyers are aware of this process
        To their disadvantage during negotiations

22                                       Joseph Ogachi MCIPS, MBA
     What is the normal reaction of a buyer
     when informed by the supplier that there is
     an imminent price increase?

     Place an order to get in ahead of the price
     rise ..
     Which of course is exactly what the sales
     staff want!

     Conditioning the buyer.. tools of

        The price list: a well printed price list has some
         permanency in it.. challenge it
        Discount: “Special price for special customer”. The
         discount is meant to make the buyer anxious to buy
         and reluctant to question the price further
        Volume purchases: When suppliers want buyers to
         buy larger quantities, they resort to volume discounts
        Bad mistake!

     Sales rep claiming limited authority to give the
       concessions asked by buyer..
     Counter-ploy: Ask who does have the authority
       and then demand to meet that person
     Ploy: Claiming low profits/close to cost
     Counter-ploy: Investigate further

     “You are a small customer”;
     Reaction: Small customers amount to a lot
     Small customers could be paying higher
     Friendly Interest in the buyer; their interests,
       likes and dislikes, family: creating a sense of
       personal commitment
     Don‟t be fooled!

     Talking to clients and management: “Back door
     Then making reference to these meetings
       when talking to buying staff
     Implying agreements have been reached
     Counter-ploy: Manage access of sales people
       to other members of staff; train users on
       basic commercial techniques.

        Feedback mechanisms reporting key expenditures,

     E: Influencing the supply market

     Essence of strategic supply planning is that the
       professional buyer not only must change
       suppliers, but also must change the market
       by finding and developing new products and
       suppliers or by making the existing ones
       behave in a different way.

     ..Influencing the supply market

        Our strategic role: seeking out and trading
         with suppliers of the highest quality in terms
         of product and services offered and cost
        Our problem: constant firefighting to solve
         current problems as suppliers failed to live to
         their contractual obligations.
        Why?

     ..influencing the supply market

        Inadequate time and resources are applied
         at the earliest stages of the procurement
        Upstream management: all the activities and
         functions which take place before the order
         or contract is placed: supply planning,
         product strategy development, supplier

     ..influencing the supply market

        Downstream management: activities and
         functions that take place after the orders or
         contract is placed: expediting, inspections,
         problem solving, invoice matching,
         emergencies, routine paperwork
        Which of these management functions is
         more strategic? Why

        Supply planning: to ensure the existence of a
         supply-market to which the buying company
         has ready access and which enables it to
         succeed as a business both now and in the
         future. How?
        Supply positioning: segmenting purchases
         both in relation to the value and degree of
         risk in the purchase

     ..influencing the supply market

        Supplier preferences: look at transactions
         from the point of view of the supplier. How do
         suppliers view you as their customer?
        Vulnerability management: Buyers examine
         the entire supply chain of the item that they
         are purchasing, identifying future supply
         problems, hence triggering planning activity
         to obviate the problem
