SCM sourcing is a key activity in procurement an purchasing processes. A good logistic and supply chain professional should know the sourcing alternatives available when selecting suppliers! Watch and learn quickly! A good SCM job is waiting for you. Subscribe Americo e-Learning by Americo Cunha, PhD. Subscribe here: https://goo.gl/HpmVLb Summary of video transcript One of the most important activities of the purchasing process is the sourcing. What is sourcing? What are the alternatives? How to select suppliers professionally? Sourcing is the process of identifying, selecting, and developing suppliers. In this video, you have to answer four questions. What are the materials required? How the company can obtain these materials? In the case of purchasing, who and where are the suppliers? The what question lead us to the requirements. The how, if the company will be producing or purchasing the material. Alternatives for location, type, size, quantity are the answers to the questions who and where. The purchasing professional should evaluate alternatives and determine which one meets the company requirements and strategy. One of the first decision to be made is if the company will produce internally or buy the resource required. If decides for producing internally, the production area should take care of the request. In the case of purchasing, the company has some basic alternatives. The basic sourcing alternatives are: - Single vs. multiple suppliers - Local, regional, global suppliers - Retailers, distributors, manufacturers - Large and small suppliers We will be working on them with more details next. ============= Practical training in business analysis for professionals that work within short due dates and under pressure.

Supply Chain Cost Reduction - 5 Key Levers

http://www.logisticsbureau.com Rob O'Byrne introduces his 5 key levers for Supply Chain cost reduction. The article is here: http://www.logisticsbureau.com/b/5keylevers.htm Book Series: http://www.supplychainsecretsbooks.com/series/ People often ask me what the most effective changes are that a business can make to their Supply Chain Generally to reduce costs which is the thing that most Supply Chain managers are trying to do these days But it's hard to do that whilst maintaining or improving customer service isn't it? Well not that hard actually So in this series of videos and articles I'd like to share with you the 5 things that I've found consistently make the biggest impact on Supply Chains And what do I base that on? Well 35 Plus years in Supply Chain and Logistics the last 20 or so in consulting working with hundreds of businesses across 23 countries in total That provides an interesting perspective on what really makes a difference and what doesn't. You know I come across so many businesses struggling to fix multiple Supply chain issues at once or trying to manage a whole range of Supply Chain improvement projects concurrently And what happens? They bog down and get disheartened They waste time waste resources and waste money instead of getting the benefits they so desperately need You need to be more focussed on the outcomes you really need. A quick summary of the video is: Get a strategy in place and understand your key cost and service drivers, use this to manage and increase customer profitability, then look at your distribution network efficiency, and finally measure the right LIMITED range of performance metrics that will help you drive improvements. This is an example of the material taught at Supply Chain School. http://supplychainschool.com/ Rob O'Byrne is the CEO of specialist Supply Chain Consultant firm, Logistics Bureau. http://www.logisticsbureau.com Also check out this great ebook on supply chain management: http://supplychainmanagementsecrets.com/

Writing contracts to prevent & remedy TCO excursions  Why relying on the legal department to "own" the contract terms is the biggest disservice to your results and to your career  How empowering yourself with contract knowledge can liberate you from being dependent on the legal department  Why relying on the standard contract template terms can get you in lots of hot water and how to stay out of it  How to shift the focus from the contract being a safety net for when things go wrong to having it be a strategic tool to make sure things go right 3.

Using concessions to achieve Win-Win Why the traditional notion of Win-Win is completely wrong and needs to be thrown out the window  What the Art and Science of negotiations really is: Meeting ALL of your high value/high TCO objectives while knowing how to make the supplier feel good about the deal  Why listening is the most important negotiation skill and how to use it to achieve Win-Win  How to use a concessions worksheet model to ensure that you know exactly what the supplier wants, and how to deliver them some "wins" that are high value but have minimal impact to your TCO Omid goes even deeper into each of these topics in training through his website, seminars, webinars and courses.

What is the Strategic Sourcing in Urdu | Hindi | اُردو میں |
 
18:40
What is the Strategic Sourcing in Urdu | Hindi | اُردو میں | Procurement Profession Course (Video No. 5) In the services industry, strategic sourcing refers to a service solution, sometimes called a strategic partnership, which is specifically customized to meet the client's individual needs. In a production environment, it is often considered one component of supply chain management. Strategic sourcing is an approach to supply chain management that formalizes the way information is gathered and used so that an organization can leverage its consolidated purchasing power to find the best possible values in the marketplace. What is a strategic sourcing specialist? Sourcing Specialists are experts who help make the sourcing process of a company or institution more efficient. They do this through building relationships with suppliers, negotiating cost and developing agreements that ultimately help a company grow and become more profitable. What is meant by strategic purchasing? Companies implement Purchasing strategies in order to make cost effective purchasing decisions from a group of efficient vendors who will deliver quality goods on time and at mutually agreeable terms. ... These strategies are predominant when sourcing for IT or indirect purchasing such as office supplies and cleaning. Strategic sourcing is a systematic approach for improving an organization's purchasing activities. It ensures that the company acquires goods and services on a cost-effective basis while improving value creation. How do you build a sourcing strategy? Step 1: Enumerate the things to be sourced. Step 2: Document the current sourcing model. Step 3: Determine the desired sourcing model. Step 4: Create a visualization. Step 5: Evaluate. Step 6: Make an action plan. ....YOU CAN FOLLOW ME....

What is GLOBAL SOURCING? What does GLOBAL SOURCING mean? GLOBAL SOURCING meaning & explanation

What is GLOBAL SOURCING? What does GLOBAL SOURCING mean? GLOBAL SOURCING meaning - GLOBAL SOURCING definition - GLOBAL SOURCING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Global sourcing is the practice of sourcing from the global market for goods and services across geopolitical boundaries. Global sourcing often aims to exploit global efficiencies in the delivery of a product or service. These efficiencies include low cost skilled labor, low cost raw material and other economic factors like tax breaks and low trade tariffs. A large number of Information Technology projects and Services, including IS Applications and Mobile Apps and database services are outsourced globally to countries like Pakistan and India for more economical pricing. Common examples of globally sourced products or services include: labor-intensive manufactured products produced using low-cost Chinese labor, call centers staffed with low-cost English speaking workers in the Philippines and Pakistan and India, and IT work performed by low-cost programmers in India and Pakistan and Eastern Europe. While these examples are examples of Low-cost country sourcing, global sourcing is not limited to low-cost countries. Majority of companies today strive to harness the potential of global sourcing in reducing cost. Hence it is commonly found that global sourcing initiatives and programs form an integral part of the strategic sourcing plan and procurement strategy of many multinational companies. Global sourcing is often associated with a centralized procurement strategy for a multinational, wherein a central buying organization seeks economies of scale through corporate-wide standardization and benchmarking. A definition focused on this aspect of global sourcing is: "proactively integrating and coordinating common items and materials, processes, designs, technologies, and suppliers across worldwide purchasing, engineering, and operating locations (p. 304)" The global sourcing of goods and services has advantages and disadvantages that can go beyond low cost. Some advantages of global sourcing, beyond low cost, include: learning how to do business in a potential market, tapping into skills or resources unavailable domestically, developing alternate supplier/vendor sources to stimulate competition, and increasing total supply capacity. Some key disadvantages of global sourcing can include: hidden costs associated with different cultures and time zones, exposure to financial and political risks in countries with (often) emerging economies, increased risk of the loss of intellectual property, and increased monitoring costs relative to domestic supply. For manufactured goods, some key disadvantages include long lead times, the risk of port shutdowns interrupting supply, and the difficulty of monitoring product quality. (With regard to quality in the food industry, see Roth et al. (2008).). International procurement organizations (or IPOs) may be an element of the global sourcing strategy for a firm. These procurement organizations take primary responsibility for identifying and developing key suppliers across sourcing categories and help satisfy periodic sourcing requirements of the parent organization. Such setups help provide focus in country-based sourcing efforts. Particularly in the case of large and complex countries, such as China, where a range of sub-markets exist and suppliers span the entire value chain of a product/commodity, such IPOs provide essential on-the-ground information. Over time, these IPOs may grow up to be complete procurement organizations in their own right, with fully engaged category experts and quality assurance teams. It is therefore important for firms to clearly define an integration and scale-up plan for the IPO.

B2B Purchasing Negotiation Five Strategies to Reduce Vendor Prices
 
09:28
The following video outlines five purchasing and procurement strategies all geared towards lowering vendor prices and or reducing supply chain and inventory management costs. These strategies are put forth from someone who has worked in sales and marketing for 20 years and wanted to combine the best strategies employed by the best purchasing negotiation teams. In essence, these strategies come from those purchasing and procurement agents I have negotiated with. They include the most successful strategies employed against me. The first includes not tipping your hand and or broadcasting your needs too soon in the negotiation process with a salesperson. Instead, nail down your price and then use your requests, needs and or concession to reduce pricing. For instance, agree upon a final price and then ask for a discount or reduced price for 1) prepaying total or a portion of your purchase, 2) prompt payment incentives like net-10 day terms 1 to 2 percent discount or 3) increasing volumes or committing to long-term supply contracts or orders. The second tip includes avoiding using veiled threats - which are simply threats you have no intention of following through on. When you threaten vendors too much without ever following through on a threat, then you are simply training them not to take your threats seriously. Third, match a high-value concession for a high-value concession. In this case, come up with a list of requests and or "must-haves" as outcomes from the price negotiation. When the salesperson makes a request, make sure you counter with one of your own of equal value. Fourth, when it comes to getting price reductions from a salesperson, you have to sometimes appeal to their better nature. In this case, add a little personal touch to your negotiations. Ask for a price reduction by outlining the pressures and demands that are placed upon you as a purchasing agent. In this case, you have to attain a certain inventory cost structure so ask your salesperson to help you attain that. Finally, keep your vendor honest by constantly going out for competitive bids. Even the best of vendors can become complacent. However, if they know you know as much about pricing in the market as they do, then those vendors will be less likely to take advantage of you.

The term Sourcing used to be considered as identifying and qualifying potential suppliers of a company’s purchased goods and services. By adding “Strategic” to its description, its meaning was extended to identify, qualify, specify, negotiate and select suppliers for categories of similar spend. The focus of this webinar is to learn about this value added process.

Purchasing Negotiation Training - Supply Chain Management Negotiation Training Part III
 
17:16
http://www.CenterForPSCMExcellence.org No matter what industry or geography I get contacted by, the request is always the same: “come talk to us about negotiations”. Purchasing Negotiation Training It’s a hot topic, that’s for sure. I’m just not happy with the state of the union though. There’s so much bad information out there on negotiations. There was a time when purchasing was very transactional, by design. We’re talking pre-1980’s. Customers opportunistically decided who they would do business with and the goal was to get what you wanted, as fast as possible, from whom you wanted, at the price you wanted – it was all about the win, for the person with the money that is. High stakes negotiations were viewed as warfare, and like any war, the goal was to make out on top in the conquest. If the supplier didn’t like it, they could go pound sand, because you were the one with the money, and you could call the shots. The goal was to get an unfair advantage, to get the upper hand, to use deceit and aggression, to use psychological warfare to to paint the supplier in a corner. We are now entering the era of supply chain management. It won’t just be companies competing; supply chains will be competing too. Without an effective supply chain, companies are rendered ineffective as well. Supply chain councils will be governing the effectiveness of the supply chain. The council’s scorecard success metrics that are measured and monitored will be for the good of the chain, not for the good of the individual links. Costs will be taken OUT of the supply chain instead of forcing suppliers to make less profit - so purchasing can report more savings. If an individual company in the supply chain is faltering, they don’t get dumped like yesterday’s newspaper and unceremoniously have their business put out to bid. Instead, the supply chain council will try their best to support the companies in the chain in good times and bad, investing time and resources in them to help them be successful – for the good of the chain. Only the worst of conditions will result in a supply chain link being replaced, because – just like divorce - the total cost of doing so is very high. Back to negotiations training. Given this supply chain model above, if the goal is to make the supply chain effective, it makes absolutely no sense to employ 1950’s tactics to get the upper hand or get an unfair advantage in negotiations. How does that benefit the supply chain? This sort of antiquated negotiation training, which is out there everywhere in our profession being taught, needs a one-way ticket to the nearest landfill. You know the type of boss who you would take a bullet for? It’s probably been a while, but you know exactly what I’m talking about. You really cared about them, because they cared about you. Negotiations are no different. What you want is a set of powerful negotiation strategies that invoke INTRINSIC MOTIVATION and make the other party WANT to help make you successful, and leaves them feeling great about the deal. You cannot negotiate effectively with anyone unless they know, like, and trust you. Period. And you’re not going to achieve that with 1950’s tactics and counter-tactics that involve psychological leverage. If you’re doing these things, it’s not your fault, it’s probably what you’ve been taught. But it’s time to stop. Do you know how you’ll know that “you’ve arrived” as a purchasing and supply chain management professional? You’ll know you have arrived when you can exceed your TCO objectives in a negotiation and the supplier feels great about the deal. There’s a lot of strategy that goes into making this happen, and it doesn’t happen accidentally. But that’s the outcome you want. I can put you on that track. Procurement pros, we are in the BEST profession in the world. My challenge to you, as always: Be your best! Don’t ever settle for anything less.

Strategic Sourcing vs. Traditional Procurement
 
17:33
I interviewed Arvind Swamy who discussed Strategic Sourcing versus Traditional Procurement. How did strategic sourcing come about? 15 to 20 years ago when companies only had purchasing departments. The procurement function was treated as a need or necessary evil. When companies would procure their goods or services they would cut a PO. Not much was talked about leveraging suppliers and putting contracts in place to protect companies and suppliers. About 10-12 years ago companies started getting smarter and decided that for any good they have: They should have a limited number of suppliers They should be able to manage it. They should understand what they buy and how changes in marketplace effect what they buy and what they pay. They should know how their suppliers are doing. Are they best in class and delivering good quality?

Lesson 5 - Purchasing management - Process 101 - Purchasing process lesson workflow in Supply Chain

This is a general view of the purchasing process. Forecast, requirements, requisition, supplier selection, contract, purchase order, receipt, inspection, payment, and performance measurement. The cycle begins with the identification of needs. The needs can be defined during the planning, during a product development, in projects, or from the production process. In the production planning, the sales forecast drives the aggregate and material requirement plan -MRP. Based on the MRP, it is possible to determine the quantity and dates for raw material, components, and semi-finished goods needed to meet the production plan. The requisitioning involves the specification, describing material characteristics, quantity, and date in which the material is required. When it involves services, a statement of work should be elaborated to guide the contracting process. The business units inform the needs and descriptions through a purchase requisition.

Lesson 7 - Purchasing Portfolio Strategy – Find best purchasing strategy with the Portfolio Matrix
 
07:54
In my time in Purchasing, I learned that Supply Chain and Purchasing Management are intensely correlated, and they have two fundamental objectives: 1) Bring resources to the business at a competitive price. Acquire materials and components also at a competitive price 2) Keep supply continuity, keep the company running, keep the operations and production doing their work. Therefore, PURCHASING is an indispensable function to achieve Supply Management goals and at the end the business goals. What is the challenge here? the challenge is to formulating strategies against supply disruption at ra competitive price point. Peter Kraljic developed a matrix to simplify how the purchasing organization should approach the procurement process. Purchasing should assess supply challenges to achieve: 1) long-term availability of critical materials and components 2) mitigate supply complexity and uncertainty To make it simple: 1) pay attention to item's relative value in the production process and product value 2) Evaluate how hard is to get the item, material, or component. We can do a better job by placing the components to be purchased in a matrix. The matrix has two dimensions 1) The item's value related to the cost of the whole production process; related to the entire product value. For instance, if the component cost1 dollar and the product 100 dollars, it has a lower relative value if compared to a component that costs 20 dollars 2) The level in which it is difficult to get, to acquire, to purchase the item. You may ask: how difficult is to buy or to put the component available for the production process. It is a kind of risk measurement We can divide the components into four groups. - The components the have a relatively low value if compared the overall cost and are easy to get or acquire. - Then, we have the components that have a relatively high value if compared the total cost, and still, they are easy to get or obtain. - we also have the components that have a relatively low value if compared the total cost, but because of some peculiar reason are not easy to purchase. - Last but not least, there are few components very expensive and very difficult to acquire. Last talk about the first group of components "low-value-easy-to-get" We called these components, ROUTINE ITEMS. You have many sourcing alternatives, they have a low cost, and it is very easy to buy. The strategy here is to simplify the purchasing process and supply process. Make it simple, don't waste time and money on these items. If the components are easy to acquire but have a significant cost relative to the production or product cost, we call them LEVERAGE ITEMS. Why? Because the company has many potential suppliers, therefore let's leverage the bargaining power and maximize the commercial advantage. Now, the mysterious components that we call BOTTLENECK ITEMS. They have relative low cost but for some reason they are very difficult to acquire and to bring to the production process. when Japan was hit by a tsunami, several automakers in the US because of short supply of some pigments. Pigment is usually cheap and its participation in the car cost is very low. For some reason these components embedded some specific technology although the low cost. The best strategy is to develop strategies to ensure supply continuity. Critical items are the essential component of the product or production process. These components are crucial to differentiate the product, to the companies profit, sales. They may have lot's technology, intellectual property, participation on the cost bottom line. Therefore, you have to put effort, time, dedication to bringing these components to the company. The recommended strategy is to develop a good partnership with the critical suppliers Every time you are assigned to purchase a component for the company, try to figure out in which category the component falls. This helps you to understand the context you are working in, and to find the best strategy to buy the component. Again, keep in mind the two primary objectives of any SCM or purchasing professional. 1) Bring resources to the business at a competitive price. Acquire materials and components also at a competitive price 2) Keep supply continuity, keep the company running, keep the operations and production doing the work. References: Kraljic, P. (1983).
