Stakeholder relations has been a top three issue for procurement in most of the research for the last 15 years or so, yet, with a professional approach to the problem, much can be achieved.

This session will explain the tenants of stakeholder management and how to map your stakeholder groups and their needs.

It will also use the health sector as a case study given clinicians are amongst the most demanding stakeholder groups.

The subsequent Roundtable discussion will allow comparison of different approaches in different industries, offering key takeaways for the group to consider in their organisations.
