I personally love celebrations of all sorts. From the rites of passage as we age to the smallest successes in work, no matter what the reason, I enjoy the cause for celebration.So you can probably assume from this that I am especially excited to see nominations coming in for the Outsourcing & Sourcing Excellence Awards!While the outsourcing component of this awards program has been around for years, the sourcing categories are new.
I hope you look around your company and see if there is a success story that deserves recognition.We are accepting nominations until August 18th. All submittals will be judged by an independent panel of experts and the winners will be announced and celebrated at our Spring Global Sourcing Summit at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida.We are excited to hear your best practices, from relationships in early stages through mature ones. We can all learn from your innovative approaches and be challenged to understand why some relationships stumble before they become strong.
We hope that you will nominate your success stories and get the recognition you deserve.We will be featuring a pre-Summit educational overview of the nominees in the Spring and showcasing some of the award winners in our newsletter and on our website.
In the meantime, keep up the great sourcing and outsourcing work and I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Regional Roundtable and the Global Leadership Summit in October.
