Title: Strategic Sourcing


1
Strategic Sourcing
  • Principles for Designing a Great Sourcing Strategy

2
My Assumptions About You
Assumptions
  • A wide-range of experiences
  • Working in various capacities
  • Expertise in recruitment and related disciplines
  • Various levels of professional ranks
  • You could be teaching me

3
  • What is Sourcing?

Definition
The process of identifying candidates for the
organization.
4
What is Strategic Sourcing?
Definition
  • Strategic sourcing is a standard and formal
    process that incorporates on-going analysis to
    evaluate the right mix of tools and techniques to
    improve candidate generation performance and to
    reduce the total cost of recruiting them.

Keywords strategies
Develop Strategy
Analyze Market
Identify Requirements
  • Begin a planning process, assessing requirements.
  • Identify each important concept, focusing on the
    skill more so than keywords
  • Research terms/synonyms and tool selection,
    elaborating each concept term, being aware of
    information environment structure tool search
    options.

Define what you are looking for.

The primary responsibilities of the EDA Analyst
is development of design processes, flows, and
methodology and the corresponding development
and/or implementation of technical applications
to effect FNC Product Development with a focus on
decreasing design cycle time, improving quality,
and reducing cost. Typical application areas for
this position include Verilog based RTL design,
i.e. Synthesis, Simulation and Verification, and
includes interfaces to the systems that support
product lifecycle management, i.e. source code
revision control, configuration management,
engineering change/release management, etc.This
EDA Analyst position is to provide ClearCase flow
design, development, implementation and support
of the ClearCase design environment in support of
ASIC and FPGA engineers involved in product
design and development. ClearCase UCM is used to
satisfy the work-in-progress revision control and
configuration management requirements of the RTL
and Verification engineers. The environment
incorporates commercial EDA tools that are used
to capture and verify the design. Automation is
provided in perl and make to create a flow that
supports concurrent engineering in an efficient
manner.

Develop Strategy
Analyze needs
Identify Requirements
Think of possible companies that would have the
perfect candidate. Create a target list of
companies you wish to penetrate. Be sure to
include physical address, phone number, and
website information. Use research tools to find
information about an target companies. Search
within those companies for hidden talent.
Research candidates employed by them.
Define where you are targeting.

  • Ive included a sample spreadsheet I maintained
    as I reviewed resumes.
  • Thru every stage of your search maintain a
    lookout for companies may have your candidate
    type within their organization. Make it a
    practice to kept a listing of them as pictured
    below. These are possible targets as well.

15
  • Look thru any internal applicant tracking
    system, contact database any or professional
    network you may have access to for any names
    within your target organization.

Define your targets habits.
What does their world consist of? What you know
about the habits of the target candidate. What
magazines or journals do they read? What
conferences might they attend? Who do they talk
to everyday? What are they like? Anything else
you view as important and that you think I have a
need to know.
Tools Google blog search, bloglines, rss, forums

18
  • As you set up your search, dont forget to keep
    up with the schools that possible candidates may
    have come out of. Any school that may offer that
    have the type of degree your prospect may have.
  • Make a list of all applicable ones. Later on in
    your search they may be useful to either network
    with the professors or to look for their alumni
    associations.

19
  • Also dont forget to compile and maintain a list
    of newsgroups, discussion forums, or blogs where
    prospective candidates are likely to congregate
    in.

  • So far we have focused on setting up the research
    for our sourcing. We have defined our prospect
    and area of focus with various networking
    possibilities, primarily through our internal
    resources.
  • Now we are well positioned to make some
    decisions. Passive vs. Active sourcing channels,
    etc..

Where do we search?
Tools Google, Altavista, live, exalead
21
search engines...
  • Have different coverage
  • different search features
  • different algorithms for sorting results
  • Compare search engines
  • http//ranking.thumbshots.com/
  • Note only works in Internet Explorer

google Yahoo live
  • Quick Keyword search
  • (keywords, intitle, inurl)

Advance search (flips, x-rays)
Altavista yahoo
Advanced commands Depth, within, before, after,

  • search starts with one or just a few keywords as
    it progresses additional keywords are connected
    using appropriate Boolean operators /or

  • Next, lets explore some simple internet queries
    you can use to further research our target
    companies.

37
  • First, lets try some simple keyword searches.
    Lets use the name of our target company a phrase
    like he is one of our job titles and our target
    location for starters.
  • The query should look something like
  • Toyota he is project engineer Los Angeles,
    CA

38
  • We can also try flipping our target company.
    We can build from the previous query by just
    modifying it a bit.
  • The query should now look something like
  • linkdomainwww.toyota.com he is project
    engineer Los Angeles, IL

39
  • We can also try x-raying our target company
    again by simply modifying our previous query a
    bit.
  • Try
  • hosttoyota.com he is software java

Main focus
Basic Search Strategy
Wildcard Use including truncation
Information Environment Including structure and
layout Little or no distinction between internal
Applicant tracking system searches and open
internet searches
Job Boards Monster, careerbuilder, dice, etc
Search Options May include just the most popular
search engines i.e. Google, live, yahoo
Keyword Search Process
Internal ATS Limited few used
Synonyms Use of alternative terms and even spell
checking
Logical Operators or Boolean Use of terms like
and or and not

Strategic Sourcing Strategy finding a way
through a maze
  • Planning process established
  • Focus on the skill more than keywords

    selection, retrieving results
  • Aware of Info. Environment structure tool
    search options.
  • Use advanced search features
  • Develop comfort with online searching
  • reflect, see results and changing terms
  • persist, consider alternatives, persevere

42
FINAL THOUGHTS
  • Sourcing is a long term strategy
  • Deliver a sourcing infrastructure
    incrementally
  • Think Strategically, act tactically
  • Sourcing is a solution that is
  • Highly Adaptable
