Typically, only about 20% of the people that read the article also download the FREE podcast. My suggestion: by all means, download this podcast which features Dick Locke, author of the book Global Supply Management!
There are many more details about global strategic sourcing covered in the podcast that couldn't fit into the article, such as:
- How big does your spend in a category need to be in order to make global strategic sourcing a viable alternative?
- What are real global transit times and what are myths?
- Why is it a bad idea to delegate the management of your import customs to your supplier?
- And so much more!
Despite the plethora of material we covered, Dick and I didn't even really scratch the surface of the wealth of material that we cover in our online classes Basics of Smart International Procurement and Executing A Global Sourcing Strategy.
So we have resources to satisfy any size appetite for global strategic sourcing material. So, even if you're not interested in investing in the online classes, you should at least take advantage of the free stuff, right?
