Strategic Sourcing Management

Structural and Operational Decision-making

O. BRUEL

Kogan Page Ltd

2016



Strategic Sourcing Management examines procurement and supply management in detail, covering the three dimensions of competitiveness, effectiveness and efficiency. Written by Olivier Bruel, Professor Emeritus HEC Paris, and a team of contributing experts from academia, consulting and industry, the book is organised into four parts: strategic decisions; operational management of procurement and related supply chain; management of human resources and dedicated information systems; management of performance and change.This book has been written with a comprehensive global and coherent approach but the chapters are self-standing, enabling the reader to dip into different sections according to need. Strategic Sourcing Management considers both tactical and strategic perspectives that link with a corporate strategy and it includes dedicated chapters on how to set up a Strategic Sourcing function. The text is enriched with clear graphics and solid examples of best practice.Strategic Sourcing Management is a robust text based on both research and experience, so an essential reference for practitioners and academics working in or studying procurement and supply management. It is suitable for anyone involved in procurement and supply management at a senior level but also for general management enabling them to understand the mechanisms of value creation through Strategic Sourcing.

Analogies and Theories: Formal Models of Reasoning

Analogies and Theories: Formal Models of Reasoning

I. GILBOA, L. SAMUELSON, D. SCHMEIDLER

Oxford University Press

2015



The book describes formal models of reasoning that are aimed at capturing the way that economic agents, and decision makers in general think about their environment and make predictions based on their past experience. The focus is on analogies (case-based reasoning) and general theories (rule-based reasoning), and on the interaction between them, as well as between them and Bayesian reasoning. A unified approach allows one to study the dynamics of inductive reasoning in terms of the mode of reasoning that is used to generate predictions

B. RAMANANTSOA, T. R. BROWNING

Albin Michel

2015



La France traverse une crise sans précédent et chaque jour les critiques contre les patrons, la mondialisation et l’affairisme font reculer une ambition simple : permettre à notre pays de rester une grande puissance et de garantir à ses habitants un haut niveau de vie. Pire, en handicapant, par une succession de politiques de gribouille, le long terme comme l’esprit d’initiative, nous voici marginalisés. Or, comme le martèle Bernard Ramanantsoa : « Au XXIe siècle, le business fait l’histoire. » Il faut donc défendre ceux qui chaque jour agissent pour maintenir la France au cœur du monde des affaires et des affaires du monde.Depuis vingt ans à la tête d’HEC, Bernard Ramanantsoa se bat pour les entreprises et les entrepreneurs. Car HEC n’est pas une simple business school. C’est un laboratoire où se préparent les dirigeants de demain et où des chercheurs d’excellence s’appliquent à améliorer les performances économiques. Une école de vie
