Since Next Level Purchasing started sending out its newsletter in July 2002, we’ve produced over 100 issues. We have all of them from edition #50 to the current issue archived at http://www.NextLevelPurchasing.com/free.html
As the archives grow, it has gotten more cumbersome to search our archives for an article on a specific topic…until now!
I’ve been using del.icio.us to compile a repository of links to previous editions of PurchTips. One of the many cool featues of del.icio.us is its ability to “tag” entries of links with specific keywords. So when you view the del.icio.us list of my supply chain articles, you’ll see several tags on the right side. Click on a tag, such as cost-savings, and you’ll see only those articles about cost savings!
I won’t take up the space here to link to every topic, but here are the few categories of topics that I’ve tagged:
- Creative Ideas
- eSourcing Articles
- Ethics Articles
- Global Sourcing Articles
- Inventory Articles
- Negotiating Articles
- Purchasing Training Articles
- RFP Articles
- Strategic Sourcing Articles
- Supplier Evaluation Articles
So what do you think? Will this be helpful in your purchasing research? Please comment!
