Creating a working enterprise-wide supply management organization in the 21st Century can provide most firms with some significant cost reduction and competitive opportunities. What has to occur for this to happen is to tear down the traditional procurement silos that are firm-based and instead, use the talents and skills of the purchasing staffing and systems found in these decentralized environments for the good of the entire corporation.
