Ask The Expert – Tim Cummins and Dalip Raheja Discuss the Future of Strategic Sourcing

Posted by thempowergroup on September 23, 2010

We hope you were able to join us for today’s Ask The Expert call, but if you were not, the recording and associated slides are  now available so that you may download them at your leisure. Thanks to Dalip and Tim for an enlightening call.  You can see the blogs that inspired this conversation, The Death of Procurement: Nightmare or Nirvana, by Tim Cummins; and here, Strategic Sourcing is dead!!!, by Dalip Raheja.



Description: The Death of Strategic Sourcing
Join Dalip Raheja and Tim Cummins as they debate the future direction of sourcing and procurement …. and the impacts of today’s market conditions on traditional approaches to selling.

The growing importance of supply relationships is driving greater focus on value and outcomes. Can the sourcing function switch it methods and behaviors to meet changing business needs? And what are the implications for suppliers, in terms of the way that commitments are negotiated and managed?

This program will draw upon a series of articles produced by Dalip and Tim in recent months, with particular focus on Dalip’s series ‘The Death of Strategic Sourcing’.
