    Have your Say!


    The global sourcing industry has responded superbly to the many issues created by COVID-19.

    Our mini-survey shows that as a result, trust in company partnerships is higher today than it was pre COVID-19.
    We would now like to expand that survey and understand: 
    whether trust is still on the increase whether there will be a "true-up" across partnerships as we start to emerge out the other side and what that might look like what this means for the future of the strategic sourcing industry.

    Please have your say and share your thoughts, by participating here.
