Author Larry Paquette brings his considerable experience to this engaging and accessible guide, designed to give readers practical ideas for use in their own organizations and throughout their careers.

The Sourcing Solution is a timely resource for professionals at all levels, including:

  • Newly promoted buyers who will use it as a basic introduction to purchasing, filled with great ideas for how to do the job better
  • Managers whose growth and new responsibilities require understanding of broader issues
  • Executives who need to identify shortfalls in current sourcing initiatives, set new procurement goals, and develop strategies and metrics for ensuring success
