When a product disappoints or a service falls short, it is the purchasing and SCM professional who gets the call from the client asking about the warranty. If commercial success and professional self-preservation is an instinct you possess you will master the basic principles and legal tenets applicable to warranties. Use this warranty management book to learn about how to analyze, structure, negotiate and manage warranties, while avoiding the pitfalls. It is all well and good to divine brilliant supply-chain strategy with a carefully calculated P&L. however, poorly articulated contractual terms eat “strategy” and well-intentioned “plans” for breakfast. Strategy is nothing without planning, and planning is nothing without a well-written allocation of the parties’ respective rights and responsibilities. Consider this: an architect can give you beautiful plans, but the contract with the contractor is what will define success or failure regarding schedule and budget. Strategy, sound planning, and careful contracting are the tripartite keys to success. Warranty rights and remedies are a big part of achieving that success. Without all three, you are sitting on a two-legged stool, so order this warranty analysis textbook today.
