Have your suppliers figured out how to neutralize your procurement negotiation strategies?

will serve them well today. Guess what? Sellers have figured out how to thwart yesterday's procurement negotiation tactics.

What are others saying about this course?
"Powerful Negotiation for Successful Buying was not only one my favorite,
but one of the most beneficial Next Level Purchasing Association classes for me personally. It not only
provides you with real life examples of negotiation do's and dont's, but it also provides you with actual
conversation guides, to walk you through how to word your negotiation statement/questions, and how to
counter to your supplier's responses.
I manage a team of 30 individuals and have actually taken what I learned from this class and made my own
Quick Reference Card utilizing these tips and tricks to assist them in their negotiations, and it has
shown to increase their success in negotiations significantly!"
