As I mentioned a few months back, the demand for qualified sourcing and procurement professionals is higher than it has ever been. Worse, it seems that there is a severe shortage of qualified professionals that are capable of properly managing procurement and supply chain sourcing initiatives. While it’s good for my business, Source One, to keep getting calls for help; for most everyone else it’s a nightmare trying to find and recruit usable procurement and supply chain talent.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting a blog series with different ideas and ways to resolve your procurement and sourcing staffing problems. I’ll outline some popular methods for solving supply chain staffing issues but will also highlight some alternative solutions for staffing procurement and sourcing positions that you may not have thought of. I’ll also include some tips and pros and cons to each staffing strategy.

 I’ll update the links below to each article as they go live.

  1. This is a great blog series idea. It's clear that there isn't enough talent to support organization's needs and they have to get creative and think outside the box.
