In the videos on the YouTube channel, Source One strategic sourcing analysts review those concepts critical to modern strategic sourcing, such as supplier relationship management, supply chain optimization, and nearshoring, and explain how businesses can benefit from them the implementation of those strategies. Providing an instructional approach to strategic sourcing concepts comes naturally to Source One, as it regularly participates in educational panels concerning the industry at schools ranging from North Carolina State University to Universidad La Salle in Mexico City.

"The team we have here at Source One comes from a diverse range of backgrounds, and they work hard to develop creative solutions to our clients' complex problems. We hope that this series will open peoples' eyes to the benefits of strategic sourcing and how it can help them to improve their own organizations," said Source One Chief Executive Officer Steven Belli.

A selection of the videos are available in Spanish and are provided as a continuation of Source One's ambassadorial role for the strategic sourcing industry in Latin America, which it undertook as one of the first to bring strategic sourcing to the region. Future videos, released bi-weekly, will include a full accounting of a successful nearshoring project and the benefits the practice brought to a U.S.-based manufacturer, discussions of supply chain risk analysis, and additional strategic sourcing concepts.

"Source One remains committed to educating the current and future generations of sourcing professionals and business leaders," states Vice President of Operations William Dorn. "The offerings of this YouTube channel are a natural extension of this dedication to education."

Source One consultants are also regular speakers at Institute for Supply Management events, lead a webinar series at CFO.com, and contribute editorial content to ThomasNet's IMT Procurement Journal, Buyers Meeting Point, and their own industry-leading blog at StrategicSourceror.com. Source One's consultants have also been the recipients of numerous awards from analysts including Gartner and publications like Supply and Demand Chain Executive, Philadelphia Business Journal, and ThomasNet.
