I am living in a part of Germany, where we do have world leading machinery suppliers (many of them are mid-size companies). It is their core business value to be trustworthy and collaborative.

I am not buying directly but I have been and I am being involved closely on the process from years ago. I do that in different companies belonging to different countries and cultures. I can resume it in one word: organizational style related to procurement is the thing that has the greatest impact in all related to procurement. At least, in my personal experience.For example, in some companies I have the opportunity to work a win-loose culture was in place. If you ask me I do not agree with that. But those companies are inside the top ten companies in the world. So, beyond my personal opinion, I can not open judgment about the style when I look at that from a professional point of view due to it works from them.
