2008 SourceCon Sourcing Challenge 1 update - The Fab 5

Harry was chatting with 5 people online 15 min ago who are luck enough to get an additional 24hour head start on the rest of the competition.

Good luck!

SourceCon Challenge#2 - So you’re Stumped !! Great Sourcers that you are !!!

48 hours into Challenge #2 and the feedback is that it is just too hard. The feedback we received from Challenge#1 was “too easy”. This is not the story of the “Goldielocks and the 3 Sourcing Gurus” and you are hoping to find Challenge#3 too be 'just right'.
