"The Challenges of Supplier Selection: a discussion on addressing the manual and paper-based gaps in education procurement"
Thursday, May 3, 2018 | 2:00 PM ET
Procurement fulfills one of the most critical business needs of an organization – yet, it remains an under appreciated and frequently thankless job.
Much of this unfair negativity originates from the hard-copy and manual processes many teams still use to complete the most crucial/pivotal part of the job: supplier selection.
In today’s reality of escalating demands and scarce resources, many teams are struggling to keep up. But, there are new strategies and tools to make this difficult job easier and elevate procurement’s role to that of a strong strategic partner to the organization.
Join us on May 3rd for a discussion with education procurement leaders about their supplier selection process: how they have addressed the gaps in supplier selection and employed new strategies and tools to increase their teams’ ability to deliver value.
1. Identifying the challenges and gaps in supplier selection
2. Addressing these challenges and conducting change management
3. Solving the ‘branding’ problem - the impact of new strategies and tools on performance, and the shift from tactical to strategic decision making
