The Purchasing Chessboard The Purchasing Chessboard

As supplier markets become more differentiated, a "one size fits all" strategy is no longer effective. Clients ask what supply strategy they should develop to face market volatility and uncertainty so they can expand their business and manage complexity in a regional setting of continued hyper-speed growth.

To meet these challenges, A.T. Kearney developed The Purchasing Chessboard. This rich portfolio of 64 methods addresses every supply and demand market condition. It assists businesses in building incremental value by broadening the supply base, reducing costs, sustaining growth, identifying ways to collaborate with suppliers, and bridging functional knowledge across the organization.

A.T. Kearney is pleased to launch an Arabic version of the The Purchasing Chessboard and a summary paper. The translation to Arabic signifies A.T. Kearney's commitment to the development of Middle East procurement talent. The Chessboard framework helps identify the best supply strategy from a broad range of best-in-class approaches, enabling long-term competitiveness of corporations in the region.
