You have to figure out how to balance and coordinate the needs, wants, and preferences of a seemingly endless list of decision makers. While you try to focus on total cost of ownership (TCO), other functional groups only ask, “What’s the purchase price variance? You’ve never sourced this category and you have no idea where to start analyzing, much less mitigating, risk. Is it any wonder that you fear you will leave more value on the table than you will be able to capture?
