It is doubtful that any subject in the history of procurement or supply chain management has created more excitement and enthusiasm than "e-procurement." It promises to revolutionize the way we do business, and produce significant savings. The subject of strategic sourcing creates almost as much excitement, and possibly even more return-oninvestment (ROI). It is therefore incumbent upon all procurement/supply chain professionals to become conversant on both of these subjects, and to understand the relevance of each to the procurement process.
