The Vendor Management Program Office (VMPO)

Five deadly sins of vendor management


As outsourcing continues to go mainstream, organizations are not only considering opportunities to offshore processes but also to outsource them within the originating country. Processes such as information technology, finance, and human resources continue to be the main focus, but others, such as legal, procurement and sales/marketing, are becoming more common.
