The cost savings and business efficiencies brought about by strategic sourcing earn a procurement department much respect.  But once the right supplier has been identified, the real work starts.

That’s because a sourcing project that took three months culminates in a supplier relationship that may need to be managed for three years.  Maybe more.  And if that supplier relationship falters, all of those strategic sourcing gains will be lost, not to mention all of that respect.

So how do you keep procurement out of the doghouse?

Through the excellent agreement implementation and  supplier relationship management practices that you’ll learn in the NLPA’s upcoming webinar, “Keeping Procurement Out of the Doghouse:  How To Fulfill The Promise of Great Strategic Sourcing.”  You’ll get insight into topics ranging from identifying ongoing cost reduction opportunities, leveraging suppliers as a source of ideas, renegotiating obsolete deals, and more!

This webinar will be held on Wednesday June 29, 2016 at 11:30 am Eastern US time.
