Why Read This Brief

In general a recession — or even the fear of one — forces companies to focus obsessively on cost-effective solutions. Many companies turn to their (sometimes newly created) sourcing teams to help achieve that cost savings. As a result, sourcing professionals can play a major role in helping their companies achieve required business goals. It's also a prime opportunity for sourcing professionals to prove their value to the business and become a true business partner.
