SmartSourcing – A Viable Alternative to Simple Outsourcing
When we engage in outsourcing discussions, many managers and/or executives feel they need to think about outsourcing differently, but have not been able to work with a suitable model. Companies are under labor cost pressures and apply a “me too” strategy, only to find out later that replicating a competitor’s sourcing strategy may not be suitable. This webinar will outline a framework to better engage an outsourcing strategy aligned with a company’s strategic plan, as well as their supply chain and vendor management controls and practices.
