Source One is proud to officially announce the upcoming release of its book: Managing Indirect Spend: Enhancing Profitability Through Strategic Sourcing. With a release date scheduled for October 19, 2011, Source One has begun interviews and speaking events to help promote the book and to answer questions about its content, history and the authors. The book is currently available for pre-order via Amazon.com.
The idea for the book, Managing Indirect Spend, came about when Joe Payne and William Dorn of Source One started reviewing published training materials and realized that there was very little content available (outside of direct materials) to assist procurement professionals or financial professionals in learning the best practices of strategic sourcing. On top of that, the materials that do exist in the marketplace attempt to enforce strict processes (such as the widely known 7 step sourcing process) and do not provide for any creativity or adaption to those processes. Ultimately, static sourcing procedures lead to mediocre results.
This book offers value to both sourcing newbies and polished professionals. Finance, Operations, IT and other professionals new to sourcing will find a plain language guide to help in strategic sourcing projectsl from concept to team development all the way through implementation. Experienced strategic sourcing professionals will find detailed examples, tips to solve difficult situations and specific commodity sourcing guides for common spend categories.
