Your supply chain in the global economy must be dynamic and structurally flexible.
Therefore, your supplier relations are far more important than previously. That means that the “lowest cost price possible” is no longer the procurement department’s only guiding principle. This does not make the price irrelevant, of course, but it is no longer the only priority.

Strategy sourcing means that your business views the procurement function in a wider perspective: as an integral part of the whole supply chain.
