When you combine it with the e-Sourcing Wiki that has almost 35 wiki-papers on all of the relevant global supply management subjects (co-)authored by the doctor, the integrated PurchSearch procurement search engine (powered by Google Custom Search and brought to you by Next Level Purchasing), the Sourcing Innovation Illuminations, and the free Iasta-sponsored e-Sourcing Handbook, you’ve got everything you need. Plus, the new search functionality combined with the extended indexes for events, vendors, and linked-in groups makes it even easier to find what you’re looking for. So check The Resource Site out today!
Don’t forget that the resource site is only as good as you make it. If you have an event (conference, roundtable, seminar, training program, workshop, or webcast), blog (wiki, or community), publication, journal, center of excellence, society, analyst firm, linked-in group, podcast, or job site that your fellow supply management professionals would benefit from, you can always submit it for inclusion on the resource site! This will insure that the site continues to meet all of the supply management needs of the sourcing nation!
