Disruptive procurement is the process of creating real business value and competitive advantage by:
- deconstructing what the business really needs,
- challenging established business processes,
- leveraging knowledge from outside the normal points of reference, and
- designing, assembling and managing the supply chain in new and innovative ways.
“Disruptive procurement” uses knowledge of the entire supply chain to challenge requirements and drive out business benefits far in excess of any improvements in margin.
