This blog, written by an individual who has started and owned many companies, reflects a common perception among CEO’s. And the heart of it sheds some valuable light on how purchasing is perceived and why purchasing is a target for downsizing.

So what do you think of this guy’s perception of employees who don’t make or sell something?

Is he missing the point that some employees – like purchasing professionals – can have a big, positive impact on profits?
