Source One Management Services to Shed Light on the New World of Procurement at ISM 2016 Annual Conference

    WILLOW GROVE, PA, October 28, 2015 /Manufacturing PR News/ -- This week, the always forward-looking strategic sourcing and procurement consulting firm, Source One Management Services announces it will be joining the roster of presenters and exhibitors at the Institute for Supply Management's 2016 Conference this May in Indianapolis. The annual three day event hosts thousands of supply chain and procurement professionals for a variety of elevated learning, thought leadership, and networking sessions and opportunities.

This year, Source One experts will be featured guest speakers on new procurement talent management trends - including succession planning and the emergence of procurement centers of excellence during the session entitled: The New World of Procurement. The discussion will explore the shifting talent paradigm occurring in procurement. With the rapid growth of a contingent workforce, the roles and responsibilities of strategic sourcing and procurement (SS&P) departments are evolving. Source One's experts will shed light on what this evolution means for managing resources, tools, consultants, and skillsets.

VP of Source One Operations, William Dorn explains; "The previously tactical and reactive function of procurement is shifting as best-in-class companies are realizing the strategic benefits of procurement and sourcing as a proactive approach to achieving corporate wide goals. The challenge, however, is breaking down the internal silos that prevent a department from operating cohesively. Our role, as procurement consultants, is to help our clients do just that and allow for optimal utilization of talent across a wide range of categories."

As a leading provider of procurement services, Source One is in a prime position to see the industry and the marketplace evolve, and the firm's client base continues to grow as the procurement talent paradigm shifts. The company continues to offer flexible staffing solutions to suit a wide range of organizational needs ranging from full- and part-time placements to full procurement business process outsourcing. However, a key differentiator for the strategic sourcing firm is its "on-demand" supplementary sourcing service. Acting as an extension to client resources, Source One consultants leverage proprietary market intelligence and industry best practices to drive further value from cost savings initiatives. Further, the company also offers a flexible contingency-based fee model which allows clients to only pay for services once hard-dollar savings are realized.

This will be the second year in a row Source One will present on an industry hot topic. At ISM 2015, Dorn and Senior Project Manager Diego De la Garza presented on Nearshoring to Mexico. In addition to this year's session, Source One will also be exhibitors at booth #528. Attendees are welcome to stop by the booth to learn more about the firm's innovative strategic sourcing and spend management solutions.
