Supply Chain Capability Building Topics 

  • Go-To-Market Approach: Examples, activities, and discussion will teach your team when and how to “go to market” with a request for information (RFI) or request for proposal (RFP).

  • Benchmarking and Supplier Market Analysis: In order to develop strong supplier relationships, it is important to understand the unique dynamic and language used in the suppliers’ industry sector. By isolating a spend category or commodity, we will learn techniques to break down an industry and develop valuable insights to help your team develop greater confidence that they are choosing the right supplier at the right cost.

  • Negotiation Frameworks & Strategies: Learn data-driven techniques to create a collaborative, win-win negotiating scenario.

  • Category Strategy Development: Develop tools and techniques to work with key business stakeholders to target a specific spend category or commodity.

  • Supplier Segmentation & Supplier Relationship Management: Learn how to segment the suppliers that pose the highest risks and rewards to your company. Collaboration leads to shared value. By using actual examples, we will build strong governance models and scorecards that can be used to setting clear expectations and lines of communication.
