Webinar: How Collaborative Cost Processes Deliver Results and Build Alignment

THIS WEBINAR WAS RECORDED ON THE

May 26, 2016

DURATION

30 min

webinar description

58% of the CEO’s we surveyed questioned the value their purchasing organizations drop to the bottom line; 52% believe there are significant savings yet to be realized. In follow up interviews these CEO’s often questioned how well purchasing and the supply base were aligned with their companies and customers. This webinar will focus on how to implement collaborative cost programs that deliver results, improve alignment and provide the bottom line results CEO’s are seeking.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • The difference between market based purchasing and knowledge based purchasing

  • Why purchasing teams don’t naturally collaborate with suppliers as often as they should

  • What purchasing can do to simultaneously build a collaborative culture and deliver improved results

Advanced Purchasing Dynamics
Jeoffrey Burris, Founder and Principal
Jeoff founded APD after spending 20 years in the automotive industry, where he became a recognized authority on procurement processes. He is a noted builder of high performance teams: he led purchasing staffs at Ford Motor Company, Metaldyne and Intier Automotive Seating. Jeoff’s teams were able to consistently save money on procurement costs and significantly improve related processes.

In addition to developing a deep understanding of purchasing in the domestic automotive industry, Jeoff became a successful manager in the global arena, directing profitable facilities and joint ventures in India, Korea and Mexico.
In 2004, the time was right for Jeoff to bring his passion for discovering optimal procurement solutions to his own firm. He infused APD with methodologies for true cost model engineering, and approaches to evaluate global sourcing options while performing precise, customized risk assessments.

At APD’s Plymouth, Michigan headquarters, Jeoff believes in forging a better, more collaborative relationship with suppliers. His techniques improve the entire organization, not just the purchasing department. He believes that a transparent, highly professional, collaborative approach to procurement brings not only substantial financial rewards but also allows well-informed people to operate in a thriving environment.

Jeoff has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Supervision from Purdue University and an MBA in Operations from Indiana University. He remains a key figure in the world of procurement and global sourcing.
