Supplier Relationship Management

Supply Market Analysis

Build mutually strong relationships with your vendors to provide real value to your organisation

A programme designed to analyse and interpret Supply Markets to inform category and sourcing strategies

Key course content: ˃˃ Be able to categorise your suppliers to understand the different relationships required ˃˃ Understand the business-to-business relationship and network from a corporate perspective ˃˃ Plan a good relationship from start to finish – from before you’ve selected suppliers, to after they leave ˃˃ Determine and track the value that suppliers provide ˃˃ Manage your interpersonal relationships with suppliers

Key course content: ˃˃ Tools to analyse market structure ˃˃ Tools to identify supplier strategies ˃˃ How markets behave and change ˃˃ Understanding market power ˃˃ Product lifecycle and pricing policies

Supplier relationships are critical to any buying enterprise. Many companies have realised that it is vital to make sure these relationships are managed well – at corporate and interpersonal levels. This course starts at the most strategic level – helping categorise your suppliers by configuration structures, importance, as well as how they view your organisation. We then explore corporate relationships that span many individuals over a long period of time and examine some key tools that are useful when many people are managing supplier relationships. It is not enough just to have a good relationship; your organisation must derive value from it. To do this, we determine how to measure the success of your supplier relationships using the Contract Scorecard. We then seek to improve your interpersonal relationships, not only with suppliers, but within your organisation as well. You will complete an online profiling prior to the course, and will gain valuable insight into your values and behaviours. We then take that further, engaging in a problem solving exercise where your strengths (and weaknesses), and those of your group are put to the test. Benefits of attending You will receive a confidential 16-page report on your contract management style from your online assessment, excerpts from books by Dr. Cullen including the ‘Contract Scorecard’ and ‘Relationships by Design’ and numerous best-practice checklists.

This programme provides delegates with a range of analytical tools designed to help them understand how the supply market does and could operate. In turn this allows the delegate to design their sourcing and category strategies appropriately. It is an interactive programme that allows the delegates to practise the tools described. Delegates are advised to prepare some real situations that they can address in the workshop to generate immediate benefits. Benefits of attending By attending this course, delegates will be equipped with both an understanding of the analytical tools, and the ability to use them. Who should attend? Procurement professionals looking to extract further value from their Supply Chain through the application of proven and reliable techniques.

Writing Specifications Write clear, easy-to-use and commercially-sound specifications, statements of work/requirements and SLAs Key course content: ˃˃ Know why the specification is the most important part of the contract ˃˃ Gain practical experience writing each key part of a specification. ˃˃ Learn how to be clear – and get accurate prices as a result ˃˃ Know how to write KPIs that will work in practice ˃˃ Examine different KPI recourse/reward schemes ˃˃ Be able to critique any specification and fix it ˃˃ Fit the specification into the overall contract The specification is one of, if not, the most important document to form and manage contracts. If it is vague, difficult to use, or overly complex (or overly simplistic), its value is severely compromised. This course takes you through the high-level issues and solutions down to the detailed ones. First, we examine a dispute to assess the role of the specification in allowing two parties to form two completely different views. We then dedicate a significant portion of the course to writing a ‘specification’, and related performance measures that work. We pay close attention to ensuring appropriate structure, clear responsibilities, and the right language. Performance measures, and the financial and non-financial means to drive performance, are explored in detail as well. Benefits of attending As a manager, the responsibility rests with you to ensure your organisation effectively designs, manages and monitors the specifications in the key areas of your business. This two-day intensive workshop gives you the key tools, with practical application, so that quotations are accurate, differing interpretations are few, management can be efficient, and performance is driven to the right result. You will receive a detailed guide to specifications, as well as numerous articles and best-practice checklists. Who should attend? Anyone responsible for preparing, reviewing or managing specifications, or guiding organisational best-practice in the area. This includes engineers, ‘subject matter’ experts, contract managers and procurement professionals.
