Outsourcing procurement

27 March 2007
When I’m out of the office meeting buyers one theme always comes up; outsourcing procurement. Should we do it? And if so, how much? There are some strong views on the topic –including that it brings better use of time, but can drain skills - but certainly no consensus. I am very interested in your views. Have you done it? Did it work? Any horror stories or unintended benefits?
