 The value of relationships count in today’s fast-paced and disrupted business environment, where partnerships, future efficiencies and risk mitigation are just as vital a measure of an organisation’s maturing procurement organisation as overhead reduction.

The reality of a more interconnected world requires companies to engage in greater collaboration and cooperation both internally and externally in order to maintain their growth by creating greater opportunities for innovation, resulting in better products and services, brought to market quicker than ever.

Global companies, with thousands of suppliers, particularly need to manage their supplier base appropriately and effectively by working collaboratively with these external partners and employing the strategic planning approach of Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) to drive down costs, reduce risk to their organisation and release the potential for innovation and greater value.

This can be achieved by companies taking a more integrated approach to supply-chain optimization, redesigning their buyer-supplier processes together to reduce waste and redundant effort, or jointly purchasing raw materials. Additionally, they can collaborate in forecasting, planning, and capacity management—thereby improving service levels, mitigating risks, and strengthening the combined supply chain.

When evaluating the relationship between suppliers and procurement various models and tools can be used to find the strengths, and areas of weakness. Such models should be flexible, non-rigid self-assessment tools, containing a wide range of criteria on best practice for a company’s management and what constitutes a good organisation.

 

      This course is aimed at: 

  • Supply Chain professionals in procurement and purchasing
  • Professionals in Quality Management.
  • Any professional who would like to learn how to use and apply relationship evaluation models and how it can benefit your organization.
  • Anyone managing external resources who are new to SRM, or need a refresher course.

 

This course will help you to:

Become an expert and an authority in your team in this crucial area of the supply chain.

Become a better manager

Increase your confidence.

Smart, inclusive, holistic management strategies.
