Aberdeen Group Report:
The CFO’s View of Sourcing -- Getting more to the bottom line,' September 2005
From the Executive Summary...
Uncertainty, slower revenue growth, and lower profit margins caused by higher interest rates and commodity-driven inflation will place greater demands on both. Finance and Purchasing to control costs. Despite the advancement of the purchasing function and executive support of policies and procedures, CFOs see broader business limitations that must be addressed to ensure the enterprisewide sourcing activities are established as key contributors to corporate competitiveness.
This report provides insights into sourcing, its strengths, and weaknesses from the viewpoint of finance managers
Issues at Hand:
CFOs acknowledge the increased influence of sourcing over the past five years, and most see it as a growing contributor to corporate competitiveness. CFOs and CPOs (chief purchasing officers) agree on the priorities for sourcing going forward. Initiatives that directly manage supply availability, transportation/logistics costs and escalating commodity prices are areas where sourcing should play a leading role. Business model changes are areas in which sourcing must have “some role” and actively support the line-of-business managers. These initiatives include evaluating outsourcing make/buy decisions, improving cash flow, complying with new regulatory requirements, and manage sales, general and administrative cost.
Finance managers surveyed indicate that sourcing’s current skill-set strengths lie in their negotiation and contracting capabilities. But the weaknesses - costing, project management and process innovation - are indicators of the enterprise-wide limitation of the sourcing program.
