|Title: ||A process model of global purchasing|
|Authors: ||MATTHYSSENS, Paul|
|Issue Date: ||2003|
|Citation: ||Journal of customer behaviour, 2(3). p. 305-328|
|Abstract: ||Inward internationalisation has received more and more attention in recent literature. This article contributes to this developing domain by providing a holistic description of the underlying processes of global purchasing. By means of case study research, carried out in eight companies, drivers and inhibitors of globalisation are highlighted. Conditions that could make global purchasing more efficient and effective are suggested. Attention is drawn to key factors on which companies strategies are built together with the accompanying control measures. This model serves as holistic guidance, describing the process from the external factors that influence global purchasing efforts of a company to the evaluation phase. In addition, attention is paid to the role of the suppliers.|
