The book covers the syllabus of the CIPS in respect of the Foundation Stage subjects'Introduction to Supply and Materials Management' and 'Legal and Procurement Processes' and the Graduate Diploma, Professional Stage core and option subjects of 'Purchasing and Supply Chain Management I: Strategy', and 'Purchasing and Supply Chain Management II: Tactics and Operations'. It also largely covers the specialist options of 'Stores and Inventory Management', 'Commercial Relationships' and 'International Purchasing'.
