Expert Reflections on Procurement Transformation Published in New eBook

The Procurement optimization team at Source One release new eBook capturing Procurement Transformation insights from a number of Supply Management leaders.

Willow Grove, PA, July 17, 2018 --( Leading spend management consultancy Source One, a Corcentric company, has released a comprehensive new eBook on the topic of Procurement Transformation. Titled Procurement Transformation: Industry Perspectives, the publication presents an extensive collection of reflections, insights, and procurement best practices from nearly a dozen Supply Chain thought leaders exploring the concept of optimizing the Procurement function.

Over the last several weeks, Source One has stoked the discussion surrounding Procurement Transformation with a series of whitepapers. Approaching the subject from a number of angles, the series has helped both define and demystify Procurement Transformation. These installments - focused on topics including Supply Management’s talent gap, effective approaches to new Procurement technologies, and the function’s brand identity - are now available in a single, comprehensive volume.

“As a five-part series, Procurement Transformation: Industry Perspectives has proven exceptionally popular and successful,” says Associate Director and Procurement Transformation Practice Lead Jennifer Ulrich. “We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to look at Procurement Transformation through numerous lenses and add new wrinkles to an ongoing conversation. Hopefully, some of our readers feel better equipped to initiate transformative projects within their own procurement organizations and ultimately develop a world-class function.”

In addition to Ulrich’s thoughts on measuring Procurement’s performance, Procurement Transformation: Industry Perspectives includes contributions from the following Supply Chain authorities: Jim Baehr (Group Lead, Sourcing Strategies Group), Kelly Barner (Managing Editor, Buyer’s Meeting Point), Diego De la Garza (Director, Source One), Phil Ideson (Managing Director, Palambridge), Dr. Michael Lamoureux (Editor-in-Chief, Sourcing Innovation), Naseem Malik (Manager Partner, MRA Global Sourcing), Kristian O’Meara (SVP of Value Engineering, JAGGAER), Joe Payne (VP of Professional Services, Source One), and Tom Rogers (CEO, Vendor Centric).

While the series and eBook are both extensive and highly-detailed, Source One’s experts are quick to point out that the conversation surrounding Procurement Transformation is far from over.

“Exhaustive as Procurement Transformation: Industry Perspectives is, it’s far from the last word on any of the subjects we’ve covered,” says Payne. "As we’ve seen over our decades as a sourcing services provider, the role of Procurement has evolved. So, too, has our definition of best-in-class Procurement and the methodologies companies employ to achieve that status. The eBook is representative of our continued commitment to moving Procurement forward and helping companies realize the full potential of the Procurement teams."

The Procurement Transformation team at Source One participate in these discussions with daily updates to their blog; The Strategic Sourceror; and weekly installments of The Source One Podcast.
