Supplier Relationship Management

Successful Supplier Collaboration

Purchasing for non-purchasers. If you don’t work in Procurement and interact with suppliers regularly and want tips on how to extract even more value and benefits, then join this training. Collaboration between customers and suppliers stretches beyond the Procurement department. For example, high frequency of customer supplier contact is noticed in many subject matter expertise functions, like technical, engineering, R&D, IT, product development, HR, operations, factories to name a few. Successful collaboration with suppliers helps reduce suppliers back door selling and coordinate suppliers to get more value and innovation. The benefits are tremendous. 

Why this training?

This training is built specifically for professionals who are not in Procurement and want more value from their suppliers. Imagine if you applied practical tools and insights that motivate suppliers to deliver their best performance for you? This is not a utopian wish. It is a possible reality.
