Product sourcing basically means finding a product or service to sell through your established business or to use it within your production chain processes. Sustainable Sourcing 360° goes far beyond that understanding by servicing your individual, key trade chain needs.
Strategic sourcing for different products & services often requires also the services of a clearing house & trust center involved, especially in a early stage, were trust is not fully established between two possible partners. Depending of the nature of a sourced product, it’s quality or typical chemical composition needs to be assayed.
In all these processes above a deep understanding of the psychologic mechanics and interculture conflicts mediation during communication and negotiation processes is very helpful. That might directly lead to a successful deal.
We have indeed earned some remarkable success having nonviolent business communication involved has always the individual and specific views, feelings, needs and often not clearly expressed request of all potential partners involved might result in a new quality of decision binding all parties.
This “change of talk” is especially useful on trade shows if we are involved within the scope of our overseas agent service. Further this change in communication is often a real ice breaker in our most challenging service of trade financing is often huge time consuming and our most challenging service of all.
