Item description for Purchase Order Management Best Practices: Process, Technology, and Change Management by Ehap H. Sabri...
In today's competitive business climate, companies with effective procurement strategies are beginning to separate themselves from the competition. Successful purchase order management (POM) is now a critical core competency and organizations in all industries have started investigating tools and techniques to help them succeed.
Purchase Order Management Best Practices brings together the field's latest advances and gives business professionals a comprehensive framework for lowering costs, improving efficiency, eliminating non-value added activities, and optimizing the transformation program for the POM process. It offers practical, proven tactics and detailed guidance into every aspect of POM process redesign: mapping the existing process, intelligently leveraging new technologies, building a strategy for strengthening the relationship with suppliers, identifying comprehensive related metrics, and industry success stories and lessons learned.
Although POM process transformation is a hot topic, there is not a single book that focuses on the recipe of success for a POM transformation program. This text fills the gap by providing a breakthrough start-to-finish roadmap for organizations to implement the POM transformation program successfully.

Reviews - What do customers think about Purchase Order Management Best Practices: Process, Technology, and Change Management?
POM review Jan 7, 2008
The POM book was a few hours read, not much substance for the practicioner. Lots of theory but not that much on HOW TO DO it. However, there are a few highlights in regards to process automation and standards.
Very helpful Jul 3, 2007
I recently worked with a client who had purchase order management problems. Implementation of the new purchase order management procedures were extremely difficult. The third part of the book on Change Management (written by Beitler, the change management expert) was very helpful.
I like how these three experts, Sabri (process), Gupta (technology) , and Beitler (change management), collaborated to produce such a valuable reference guide for purchase order management. They talk about state-of-the-art techniques, being used at real-world companies, in an easy-to-read style.
Should Be Required Reading Dec 27, 2006
This book should be required reading for anybody interested in supply chain management. An organization's purchase order managemnent system must reflect serious consideration of the "process, technology, and change mangement" issues that are discussed by Sabri, Gupta, and Beitler.
"POM Best Practices" offers advice that new and seasoned purchase order managements can apply immediately. I wish this type of book had been available 20 years ago when I got started.
