Future of Sourcing is the flagship publication of Sourcing Industry Group (SIG), a membership organization that provides thought leadership and networking opportunities to executives in sourcing, procurement, risk, supply chain and outsourcing from Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies and the advisors who serve them. Every week, Future of Sourcing publishes thought-provoking articles that offer advice that help industry professionals advance their careers, grow personally and professionally, perform their jobs more effectively and make their organizations more profitable.
Future of Sourcing contributors are thought leaders in the global sourcing community and provide innovative, cutting-edge insight on challenges and opportunities in the industry today. Articles are written with the practitioner in mind. Our goal is to cover all the important topics and trends that impact procurement professionals in business, including sustainability, risk management, strategy, the changing roles of the Chief Procurement Officer and the procurement function, technology, careers, leadership and more.
SIG is widely known as a forum for sharing “next” practices and thought leadership through live networking events, virtual forums and a comprehensive online SIG resource center (SRC), which was developed by and for professionals in sourcing and outsourcing. The organization is unique in that it blends practitioners, service providers and advisory firms in a non-commercial environment. SIG is also the parent organization for SIG University, an industry respected certification and training program for professionals and executives seeking deep expertise in sourcing, governance, third-party risk management and intelligent automation for themselves or their teams.
