Abstract

This session introduced, defined and explained through example an innovative new approach to total cost of ownership reduction. Traditional strategic sourcing programs have focused on supply-side cost dri vers and supplier-facing procurement processes. Demand Management aims at optimizing internal practices, processes and policies that reduce the usage of goods and services to improve total cost of ownership.
