    Enhancing Profitability Through Strategic Sourcing (Part 11)

    in Business

    Normally I would review a new book within the electronic pages or posts of my blog.
    However having aired more than 300 episodes over the virtual airwaves of the Blog Talk Radio Network, I thought that it would make far more sense to use this venue as a means of connecting you with the authors themselves to talk about their book and in particular the insights and revelations it provides in a rapidly changing global marketplace.  A kind of Live from New York sort of concept, except instead of Saturday's we will be airing over a 22 week period brief 15 minute segments dedicated to each chapter on Wednesday evening's at 10:00 PM EST.
    With this eleventh installment in the series we will continue to examine the evolution of strategic sourcing through the eyes of two industry veterans whose been there, done that expertise provides them with a unique and much needed perspective on an industry in transformation.
    I am of course talking about Source One Management Service's Joe Payne and William Dorn whose new book "Managing Indirect Spend: Enhancing Profitability Through Strategic Sourcing," has just been released.
    In this segment we will be joined by author Bill Dorn who will review the eleventh of the book’s 22 chapters which focuses on Tools To Assist You in Gathering Data and Expediting the Strategic Sourcing Process.
