In this webinar, we look at the strong argument for using what we call the supplier lifecycle process and management of that lifecycle. […]
The sourcing process sits at the heart of procurement. That means finding the right suppliers, running competitive processes, negotiating and contracting with the chosen suppliers.
In this session we will look at the end to end sourcing process and give a “refresher” overview of the key elements and issues linked to the process. That will include a discussion around using specialised sourcing techniques, such as e-auctions and market-informed sourcing; when might those be appropriate and useful?
Join Guy Allen, Managing Director of Real World Sourcing Ltd., for either of our two global webinars on 27 April 2016, with one suitable for Europe, the Middle East & Africa at 10 am GMT and the other suitable for the Americas at 11 am EST.

And, while the foundation of procurement’s future will be built upon the past, the strategies and approaches that drive new successes will be markedly different.
