Overview

Strategic sourcing is an approach to supply chain management that formalizes the way information is gathered and used, allowing an organization to leverage its consolidated purchasing power to find the best possible values in the marketplace. Strategic Sourcing Analysts collect, evaluate, and analyze sourcing information to provide direction to their organization or their organization’s clients. They examine data regarding cost and availability of materials and services needed to complete projects. Strategic Sourcing Analysts also determine risk by figuring out the probability of losing money or assets from using certain sources and establish estimates for amounts of potential loss.

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Malcolm S. Forbes

Happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Karen S. Magee

Until you value yourself, you won't value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.

M. Scott Peck

Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.

Eckhart Tolle
