A little while back I wrote a bit of a rant about the lack of coverage from analyst firms, media, and bloggers surrounding anyone that was not in the Fortune 500 space, or not selling software. As soon as I blogged it, Michael Lamoureux, aka the doctor, proved me wrong when he contacted Source One and opened up some new dialog.

The doctor was also quick to provide coverage in his recent piece “Source One scores a Grand Slam with WhyAbe”.

I suspect if you are reading my blog you are reading the doctor’s blog already. But for those of you that don’t know of Michael, he is one of the most respected and knowledgeable individuals in the procurement, sourcing, and particularly e-sourcing space. His blog has been live for almost two years, and provides a very detailed and technical view into Sourcing and Supply Chain. His primary goal is “to raise awareness of innovative best practices and technologies that are relatively unknown but that could be used by a large number of organizations to elevate their performance as a whole.”

I, for one, particularly enjoy Sourcing Innovation. Although all bloggers lean heavily towards covering their sponsors and putting them in the best light, the doctor does one of the best jobs of providing fair coverage to organizations, processes, and innovations that are not contributing to lining his pockets. As a practitioner, I find his tips and research on metrics, strategies and processes to be detailed and useful, not just fluff to fill the page.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank the doctor for the coverage, it is always nice to see an outsider’s perspective on the work that we have been doing.
