Workshop 1: Glen Cathey on ‘World Class Sourcing’ (morning tea update)

Posted on August 17th, by Sourcing Ninja in ATC SourcEvent 2011, Events. No Comments

The workshop so far…

  • What qualifies as World Class Sourcing – market coverage vs. quality search + speed?
  • Bullseye sourcing – a real eye opener for me considering I was brought up with the school of thought that you should start with a broad search and then searching narrow down the results, oscillating between the two until you have the right number of results (pendulum search);
  • Searching for the imperfect – people aren’t professional resume writers, does it matter if they have spelling error, if their CV/profile doesn’t look pretty or if they don’t have the right keywords? These are the types of people that your client/competitors overlook;
  • The power of the NOT operator – More on this on a later post but I’m guilty of not fully leveraging this Boolean operator;
  • Focus on the implicit requirements – More on this on a later post;
  • The future of sourcing is informatics.
We’re heading back in for round two. Stay tuned…
