Sourcing has a huge impact on companies “Bottom Line” and Customer Satisfaction.

I have gained a lot of Sourcing knowledge and experience over the last 30+ years in jobs and interim assignments.

I like to share some of my knowledge and experience in my blogs.

Over 30 years of experience

Over the years I have build up a large amount of knowledge and experience within the field of Sourcing. You can view my past assignments and recommendations here.

About me

My name is Roger van der Molen, I worked at Philips during the period 1990 – 2009 within several Product Divisions and/or Business Groups and gained a lot of knowledge and experience within the fields of Procurement (Sourcing), Operations and Logistics both on execution and managerial level.

During 2009 I became an independent contractor (ZZP). Based on my actual 30+ years of (international) seasoned business experience, my gained knowledge, (global) network, my own ideas, ambitions and the required education I’m offering smarter Sourcing Solutions by Consultancy/Interim Management and/or learning (training/coaching) services. My focus is mainly on the Sourcing disciplines like Procurement, Supply Chain (management) and (Outsourced) Operations (Management) within the (High) technology “oriented” make industry.

Since 2009 I executed assignments at Philips, Oce-Canon, Vanderlande, Itho Daalderop, ASML, Enexis etc.

Sourcing plays a key role within almost every company, it is the umbrella covering processes such as Strategic Purchasing, Procurement, Logistics, Outcourced Operations etc. I often call it Integral Supply Chain Management.

Sourcing has a huge impact on companies “Bottom Line” (“Profit/Loss”, “Cash Flow”, etc) and Customer Satisfaction.

Sourcing becomes more and more a competence rather then a specific department or function and interlinks all other key disciplines (processes) within the company (Marketing & Sales, Research & Development, Finance, Production,..).

A professional and sustainable Sourcing is therefore vital to become and to remain successful.

If you are in need of any Smarter Sourcing and or Interim/Consultancy solutions then don’t hesitate to contact me as I will take care for a professional set-up and execution of the Assignment with all parties-stakeholders (internal/external) involved. I have a list of executed Sourcing and/or Interim-Consultancy assignments here.
