A 2021 Purchasing Strategy in Practice – The Case of BSH House Appliances Ltd. Nazarje

Most companies have prepared purchasing strategies, one way or another. Undoubtedly, it is a great challenge to the purchasing teams and the management and all stakeholders how to implement them, how to update them, what the relevant content looks like, and how to coordinate them at a given moment. In the case of BSH Nazarje, we improve the purchasing strategy process every year, we are all increasingly aware of the need to have it, and above all, we try to take advantage of all the benefits it brings and avoid the growing risks. It is crucial that the purchasing strategy starts with the word ‘Team’ and that it is taken seriously by all the involved in its implementation, i.e. a high commitment to achieving common goals. There is no need to waste words on the need for support from the management.
