It’s a good day for a shave!

… It’s the 200th anniversary of The Barber of Seville!

And while Rossini is no Gilbert & Sullivan from a Procurement perspective, he still deserves a nod!  Because …

I am the very model of a modern Global Sourceror
I’ve information vegetable, animal, and mineral
I know the tools of sourcing, and I quote the facts logistical
From New Orleans to Shanghai, in order categorical

I’m very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical
About optimization, I’m teeming with a lot o’ news
With many cheerful facts about the cost of the blue ocean routes

I Am The Very Model of a Modern Globel Sourceror!

… and I think Gilbert & Sullivan would agree (as they were influenced by Verdi who was influenced by Rossini) 🙂
