  • Global sourcing is the practice of sourcing from the global market for goods and services across geopolitical boundaries. Global sourcing often aims to exploit global efficiencies in the delivery of a product or service. These efficiencies include low cost skilled labor, low cost raw material and other economic factors like tax breaks and low trade tariffs. A large number of Information Technology projects and Services, including IS Applications and mobile phone apps and database services are outsourced globally to countries like India and Pakistan for more economical pricing. Common examples of globally sourced products or services include labor-intensive manufactured products produced using low-cost Chinese labor, call centers staffed with low-cost English speaking workers in the Philippines, India and Pakistan, and IT work performed by low-cost programmers in India and Pakistan and Eastern Europe. While these are examples of Low-cost country sourcing, global sourcing is not limited to low-cost countries. Global sourcing initiatives and programs form an integral part of the strategic sourcing plans and procurement strategies of many multinational companies. Global sourcing is often associated with a centralized procurement strategy for a multinational, wherein a central buying organization seeks economies of scale through corporate-wide standardization and benchmarking. A definition focused on this aspect of global sourcing is: "proactively integrating and coordinating common items and materials, processes, designs, technologies, and suppliers across worldwide purchasing, engineering, and operating locations (p. 304)". The global sourcing of goods and services has advantages and disadvantages that can go beyond low cost. Some advantages of global sourcing, beyond low cost, include: learning how to do business in a potential market, tapping into skills or resources unavailable domestically, developing alternate supplier/vendor sources to stimulate competition, and increasing total supply capacity. Some key disadvantages of global sourcing can include: hidden costs associated with different cultures and time zones, exposure to financial and political risks in countries with (often) emerging economies, increased risk of the loss of intellectual property, and increased monitoring costs relative to domestic supply. For manufactured goods, some key disadvantages include long lead times, the risk of port shutdowns interrupting supply, and the difficulty of monitoring product quality. (With regard to quality in the food industry, see Roth et al. (2008).). International procurement organizations (or IPOs) may be an element of the global sourcing strategy for a firm. These procurement organizations take primary responsibility for identifying and developing key suppliers across sourcing categories and help satisfy periodic sourcing requirements of the parent organization. Such setups help provide focus in country-based sourcing efforts. Particularly in the case of large and complex countries, such as China, where a range of sub-markets exist and suppliers span the entire value chain of a product/commodity, such IPOs provide essential on-the-ground information. Over time, these IPOs may grow up to be complete procurement organizations in their own right, with fully engaged category experts and quality assurance teams. It is therefore important for firms to clearly define an integration and scale-up plan for the IPO. (en)
  • グローバル・ソーシング(英語: global sourcing)とは商学用語の一つ。グローバル・パーチェイシング、世界最適調達などとも言われる。 企業が生産に必要とする物やサービスの調達先として、世界各国の諸企業を選択対象とすること。結果として、自国内の企業から調達することもありえる。類似の用語に、global procurement、international purchasing、worldwide sourcing、import sourcing、offshore sourcing、international procurementなどがある。 (ja)
  • Global sourcing is internationale inkoop. Naast materialen kunnen dit ook middelen (resources) zijn als personeel, energie en kapitaal. Global sourcing krijgt steeds meer betekenis, omdat bijvoorbeeld ten opzichte van Noordwest-Europa de concurrentie in Azië goedkoper produceert. Om dan arbeidsplaatsen te behouden in de regio, in dit geval Noordwest-Europa, moet in Azië worden ingekocht, ten koste van de plaatselijke leveranciers. Global sourcing kan ook worden bedreven als bepaalde materialen of diensten plaatselijk niet of te weinig voorhanden zijn. (nl)
  • Global sourcing (określenie powstało z dwóch ang. słów: global czyli światowy, międzynarodowy oraz sourcing - zaopatrzenie, zakupy.) – jedna z nowocześniejszych i najszybciej rozwijających się światowych strategii zarządzania łańcuchem dostaw (ang. supply chain). Global sourcing to proces globalnego pozyskiwania dostaw/zaopatrzenia, który pozwala tworzyć dla przedsiębiorstwa długoterminowy związek zakupów z najlepszymi dostawcami.Strategia global sourcing zawiera w sobie cechy outsourcingu, według której firma chcąca osiągnąć dużą efektywność powinna zawężać swoją działalność do określonych podstawowych obszarów. Pozostałe, wewnętrzne obszary swej działalności przedsiębiorstwo powinno zlecać partnerom zewnętrznym, czyli firmom, które są w stanie lepiej i taniej wykonać usługi na rzecz przedsiębiorstwa macierzystego. Pojęcie "global" oznacza tu, że poszukiwanie takich partnerów powinno odbywać się na globalnych, międzynarodowych rynkach. (pl)
