Abstract

In this paper, we examine the impact of eProcurement and strategic alliances on corporate sourcing strategies. We present a framework we developed to help managers focus on the relevant issues for sourcing decisions. We illustrate the framework with different types of sourcing relationships in practice and provide advice on what type of relationship may be most effective in specific situations.
