Procurement organization.

How to organize the Procurement function? Well, there is of course not one single solution on how to organize a Procurement function. Type of business, history of the company, resources available and more influence how the roles and resources are organized. Still, on basic level, LHTS believe showing a generic, modern procurement organization, with roles and responsibilities, is a good way to introduce buyers in training to the procurement function and the challenges faced by a CPO.
