Managing Sourcing Projects (5 Steps Model)   NEW

Creating Steering and Control From the Start with Practical Methods

Leaving to suppliers what they do best is a simple adagio. The issue is that defining what they do best is not so evident in today’s interrelated organizations. Performance of the one is often interacting with the working methods of the other.
Managing a sound supplier relationship needs a solid basis, which is created during the Sourcing Project. The future complexity and evolution needs to embed in a controllable management environment, which needs to be build even before any request is sent to the potential suppliers.
This course is providing to participants with a practical guidance framework for building sourcing projects which are complete, coherent and soundly managed.
