University of Tennessee: new Executive Education course--global sourcing.

Global sourcing is a business strategy that many U.S. companies are exploring. Making decisions about sourcing work abroad is more than just about savings on the balance sheet. "Getting Global Sourcing Right" is for managers and staff from supply chain, purchasing, operations, sourcing, Lean, process improvement, and anyone else interested in practical how-to advice on the best practices for planning and executing a global sourcing strategy.

UT's new global sourcing course is an especially good fit for firms pursuing Lean, six sigma, or supply chain management as cornerstones of their competitive advantage. Details are available online from the UT Center for Executive Education at <http://thecenter.utk.edu/programs/global-sourcing.html>.
