Corporate strategic sourcing plays a critical role in new product introduction (NPI) in several ways. NPI is a complex process that involves developing and bringing a new product to market successfully. Effective strategic sourcing can help a company navigate this process more efficiently and enhance the chances of a new product's success.

Join us for a live webinar with thought leaders, Paul Jensen, and Michael Lucia as they discuss how strategic sourcing professionals can have greater influence when it comes to choosing the right new products to develop.
