Effective communication between procurement and the wider business is “critical” to deal with the danger of stock-outs.
 
In the latest edition of Supply Business - published in January, CIPS economist John Glen warned as the economy returns to growth stock-outs will become more common, leading to consequential losses for firms as frustrated customers go elsewhere.
 
“Effective communication between procurement and the business will increase the probability that effective performance and governance measures are put in place to ensure stock-outs are avoided,” said Glen.
