Suppliers play a key role in our business today and even more so in the future. The partnership with key suppliers is a major lever for agility, reducing real costs and working capital - all critical success factors in today's challenging environment.
What is the workshop about?
This event is for all managers involved in procurement and will enable them to understand how to achieve the maximum value from their supplier base.
It will explain the principles of make/buy decisions and will show how sourcing strategies are defined and implemented for different purchasing groups, ensuring integration with the organisation's overall supply strategy. It shows how collaborative planning with suppliers is at the heart of developing the relationship and how mutual business gains are sought and achieved.
It covers key topics including make/buy decisions and sourcing strategies; total cost of ownership (TCO) and its role in assessing and selecting suppliers; supplier planning in an ERP environment, and managing and developing supplier relationships (SRM). It provides the essential understanding to support the 'Managing External Sourcing' chapter of the Oliver Wight Class A Checklist.
