The Future of Sourcing

Strategic sourcing is increasingly challenged by its own success. At many companies, multiple waves of sourcing have resulted in a consolidated supply base, with supplier profit margins kept in check by regular application of competitive pressure. In other words, the low-hanging fruit has been picked. Meanwhile, services comprise nearly 75% of GDP in high-income countries, and research indicates that companies invest roughly 50% more in intangible assets (for example, brand, intellectual property, data assets) than they do in physical assets. To continue to uncover and deliver value in this brave new world, Procurement needs new strategies and tools.
