I hope that you’ve enjoyed the article “7 RFP Planning Tips, Part I.”
This article was based on a podcast that I recently recorded with Bill Dorn. Bill is the Vice President of Operations for sourcing consultancy Source One Management Services and is also the co-author of one of my favorite procurement books of all time, “Managing Indirect Spend: Enhancing Profitability Through Strategic Sourcing.”
Of course, the podcast covered the RFP tips that are discussed in the above-linked article plus Part II, which will be out next month. But we also covered so much more!
Much of the discussion between Bill and I was based around the topics in Managing Indirect Spend’s Chapter 9, “What Not to Do During a Strategic Sourcing Initiative.” Like anything that I promote, this stuff is practical, instantly usable material!
So, if the article piqued your interest, go check out the podcast at http://www.NextLevelPurchasing.com/podcast. It’s free!
And if you want even more great RFP and sourcing advice, stay tuned for Part II of the article or go buy Managing Indirect Spend on Amazon.com or your favorite bookstore!
