They develop back-up plans to put in place if things go wrong as well as trying to prevent them going wrong in the first place.

The Back-up Plan

Finding back-up suppliers overseas in case your supplier’s factory is wiped out by an earthquake or tsunami or looking into a cyber-attack on your company’s IT system.

Indirect
Buyer

'The Juggler'

Not everything that companies buy is made into products that are sold to customers. An important part of purchasing is making sure that the factory is able to open its gates in the morning and that people can sit down at their desks and get on with their jobs. Without this nothing can be made and then sold.
