If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, then "Selling Value to Procurement" is a perfect fit for you! By attending this interactive workshop, attendees will learn about the Procurement function, its maturity scale, motivations, and how to leverage Procurement to organically align, promote, and grow your value based selling and win more business.
This course will provide an inside-look into how suppliers are ranked, classified, and developed within the Procurement function. As a result, attendees will take-away an actionable framework to identify, build, and sustain highly profitable client relationships (with, and through, Procurement) by positioning yourself as a "partner" vs. "low priced vendor."
