As more organisations come to recognize that their supply base is critical to their business, the way we regard key suppliers is changing. Increasingly we see key suppliers as business partners. Do traditional, adversarial, negotiation strategies work in these circumstances? How do you negotiate with a supplier you also wish to view as a business partner? How do you negotiate beyond win-win to ensure you are achieving great value for your organisation whilst also strengthening your supply partnerships? Does your team negotiate effectively with both strategic business partners and commodity suppliers? Should there be a difference… or not?
These questions and many more will be explored in this expert-led round-table facilitated by one of the region’s leading negotiation experts, Dr Andrew Bean.
When registering for the session please submit issues or questions that you would like to discuss during the session.
