Supply Chain Management
Today, at the dawn of the information age, we are often surprised to learn that many of the procurement and purchasing practices that are considered revolutionary, were in fact developed thousands of years ago!
From the crafting of contracts and legal obligations, to the certification of contractors and the development of material quality standards; nearly every aspect of procurement as we know it today has its roots in the public projects and commercial enterprises of societies that existed centuries before our own, leaving no doubt as to the importance of procurement and supply chain to the development of complex societies.
