How Different is Procurement in Service and Manufacturing Organizations?

In September APQC conducted a survey to provide a better understanding of how some proposed structural changes, specifically centered on the procurement and products and service delivery sections, to APQC's Process Classification Framework® (PCF) would affect its end users. This infographic looks at findings, specifically the differences between procurement in manufacturing and service organizations.

 APQC’s Cross-Industry PCF 7.0 is scheduled to be release at the end of October 2015. Based on the survey’s findings the procurement processes will stay where they are in 4.0 Deliver Products and Services. Please stay tuned to APQC’s blog for more information on the upcoming changes.
