I hope that you have enjoyed the article “The Purchasing Manifesto.”
A key takeway I wanted you to get out of this article is that you have to communicate to your internal customer what is in it for them. And saving money isn’t at the top of their list in many cases.
You see, internal customers will often scoff at the notion of saving money because they (sometimes rightly, sometimes wrongly) feel that you are going to sacrifice quality, service, delivery, etc. by finding the lowest price. It is up to you to convince them how they will benefit by working with you.
