What the experts say
"This book provides an extensive look at the metrics, relationships, and change management considerations associated with supply base collaboration[...] It is true that supplier relationships, innovation, and collaboration are among the topics du jour in procurement, but O'Brien proves himself well versed in the associated opportunities and challenges[...] The graphics and tables in Supplier Relationship Management are a significant resource all on their own and indicate the fact that this content and recommended approaches have been well vetted through consulting engagements. He also strikes the right balance between original content and validation from third party sources, resulting in an impressive reference list". - Kelly Barner, Buyers Meeting Point
"This deserves to become THE standard book on SRM. Every senior procurement practitioner, and everyone involved with the management of strategically important suppliers, should have this book on their bookshelf. It is a very complete and exhaustive book, covering pretty much everything and anything you could think of in the field of SRM". - Peter Smith, Spend Matters
