Motive of Establishment
The work of procurement and purchasing in a company is broad, and it is becoming more complex in these few years, due to global sourcing, OEM/ODM business expansion, modular purchasing and so on. However many of top management aren't satisfied with performance of procurement organization in spite of their hard work.
In the midst of global economics, the questions, what is the core value of the company, and what should we procure from others, are the basis of business management. We have to clarify the principle and the vision of a business in order to efficiently and sufficiently apply limited budget and human resource in the procurement organization.
To support the basis of business by procurement organization which manages a big part of costs, I would like to change the organization to a truly contributing group that can create additional values and profits.
I have established Procurement Science Lab. to help a part of those kinds of situations.
