As such, SafeSourcing must be famous too.
Today’s post is by Ronald D. Southard, CEO at SafeSourcing Inc
I was reading a post on LinkedIn by Amintore Confalonieriv titled The Famous 7 Steps of Strategic Sourcing that caused me to reflect on a section of our customer prestation that we have used in sales and kickoff meetings for fifteen years when discussing how we take a category to market that compares favorably with Amintore’ s Seven Steps of Strategic Sourcing. I didn’t know they were famous, but they do align pretty well. I think you’ll enjoy the read. They are as follows.
Below are the Famous Seven Steps
- X Ray Phase | Fully understand the spend category.
- Supply Market Analysis
- Develop the Sourcing Strategy
- Start Sourcing Process
- Negotiation and Selection
- Communicate & Implement
And here are the seven steps that SafeSourcing uses. Pretty similar, I think. So, are we famous? I certainly hope so. If you are looking at your own process in Strategic sourcing or even tactical spot buys, I would read the Amintore’ s post. You could also call us at SafeSourcing for a more detailed explanation of our now famous steps.
- Value Assessment
- Strategy Development
- Event Setup
- Source Participants
