Iasta E-Sourcing Forum Post

leave a comment »

David Bush, my good friend who helped found the e-Sourcing outfit Iasta, invited me to write a guest post on e-Sourcing Forum. The topic was procurement & innovation, and I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to talk about until I started typing. Right away, my mind struck upon how open source is emerging as a crucible for innovation in software. I also perceived invention and innovation seem to be concentrating into smaller businesses as their larger counterparts scale back research to boost margins. The smartest companies will figure out how to ride on the back of small-company or co-operative innovation and adapt their supply chains to match this new world. Hope you enjoy the post on e-Sourcing Forum, and thanks again to David Bush for the invitation to join the discussion.
