Strategic Sourcing Definition

1Strategic Sourcing is a structured process of integrated task analysis based on which the make-or-buy decision is made on future procurement of services in an effective and efficient way.
Companies strive daily to reduce their procurement costs. A key enabler for reducing procurement costs and achieving further competitive advantages – such as quality improvement, access to leading edge technology, ensuring high service availability – is the use of Strategic Sourcing.
The sourcing process ranges from the development of the sourcing strategy to selecting the suppliers and to the transition.
