As a purchaser, you are expected to successfully meet many demands, often contradictory, when negotiating a deal - conditions on price, quality, delivery, guarantees, general terms and conditions etc. – and at the same time, ensure the uninterrupted flow of existing goods and services to keep suppliers and your organisation happy. Sound familiar? Certainly not an easy job!
This program helps you achieve better outcomes by building on your negotiation skills and helping you prepare your strategy more systematically. Using our tools, concepts and methods, you can structure the discussion clearly and capture the value both for your organisation and the supplier. Why is this important? Simple. A delighted supplier is motivated to not just implement the deal, but also deliver excellent service and support your organisation’s requirements.
