Learn how to establish a supplier development program

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could pick any supplier and that supplier would perform perfectly with as little work on your part as possible?

While that would sound like a procurement professional’s dream come true, that scenario is far from reality. And the more suppliers that you are responsible for, the more likely you’ll find yourself dealing with suppliers that fail to perform to their potential.

Well, the truth is, outstanding performance doesn’t have to be an unrealistic goal! You can master methods of working with your suppliers to get closer and closer to that goal. How? By taking our two-part online Express Course series “Supplier Development Program Basics.”
