Unfortunately, as more purchasing and supply chain bloggers pop up like dandelions on my front lawn in May, the overall quality of the purchasing blogosphere is declining. And even the good purchasing blogs seem to strikeout in some of their posts as they go for quantity in lieu of quality (blog search engines list results in ascending order of age, so bloggers are encouraged to post often).

Spend Matters is one of the few purchasing and supply chain blogs that has both quantity and quality. There was a particularly good piece posted today on supply chain risk. It supports a lot of what I’ve been writing about with regard to contingency plans. Check the Spend Matters post out.
