Procurement and Supply Chain Blog

 

In January of 2008,  Source One’s team of spend managers launched the Strategic Sourceror with the goal of providing a new kind of thought leadership blog.

While the site does offer timely updates on Supply Management trends, it’s more notable for its wealth of actionable strategies and  how-to guides for generating savings and elevating the role of Procurement.

The Strategic Sourceror provides proven Procurement best practices for carrying out engagements in just about every category. Here’s just a sampling of what the industry-leading Procurement team has shared:
