Negotiating the lowest possible price is no longer enough. Internal customers now demand more—they need business advice, guidance, and expertise to manage their sourcing requirements. They need... More > an organization that focuses less on price and more on the value that vendors can provide. The organizational key to unleash the potential of strategic sourcing is the Vendor Management Office or "VMO."

Resulting from over 10 years of real-life experience implementing VMOs, this book introduces the concept of a VMO and the philosophy that cost is not always a factor.

Appendices contain materials that can be easily adapted for use by any VMO. If you are interested in implementing a VMO or you are interested in vendor management as a career--this book is for you.< Less

More > Eastern and Central Europe well into the future.

On the other side, the relationship will influence significantly the capability of the EU to function effectively as a union of European states, possibly including Russia, and other European members of the Commonwealth of Independent States like Ukraine, Belarus, and Georgia. Admittedly this relationship is in a rather precarious state. But it is essential that policymakers and analysts understand what the problems are that have impeded Russia’s integration with Europe if we and they are to overcome these obstacles.< Less

Y: The Sources of Islamic Revolutionary Conduct By Major Stephen P. Lambert, Institute for National Security Studies, Joint Military Intelligence College
Paperback: $21.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
The title of this book naturally brings to mind the renowned diplomatic telegram from 1946, composed by “X” to explain “The Sources of Soviet Conduct.” The anonymous George... More > Kennan grasped the essence of the Soviet challenge, and the subsequent Containment Strategy became the foundation for strategic thought and action by the U.S. and its allies. The relatively brief “Cold War” of the late 20th century, we can now see, ironically carried the very name given in 13th century Spain to the ancient and ongoing conflict between Christians and Moors (Maghreb Moslems), a point underscored by Adda Bozeman. In the present work, Stephen Lambert convincingly argues that an effective, strategic appreciation of our present, worldwide contest, especially as it reflects the historic conflict between religious ideologies, cannot be achieved without public discussion of the religious foundations of individual and collective belief and action, whatever the label we choose to apply to the struggle.< Less

A Strategic Approach to Talent Acquisition By Pradeep Sahay
Hardcover: $46.15
Ships in 6-8 business days.
While 'Strategy' is a word that is usually associated with the future, its link to the past is no less central. Noted Danish philosopher Kierkegaard once observed, " life is lived forward but... More > understood backward." His wisdom finds an echo in Henry Mintzberg' seminal piece on "Crafting Strategy', where he writes that "Like potters at the wheel, organizations must make sense of the past if they hope to manage the future. Only by coming to recognize the patterns that form in their own behavior do they get to know their capabilities and their potential. Thus crafting strategy, like managing a craft, requires a natural synthesis of the future, present, and the past." This Book chronicles the interesting journey of an Organization aka ABC group, as it goes about crafting a 'Game - Changing Talent Acquisition Strategy', re-orienting its focus from a tactical, reactive process to a strategic program capable of consistently sourcing, recruiting and on-boarding the best talent.< Less
