BENEFITS OF VENDOR MANAGEMENT
Vendor management is a discipline that enables organisations to control costs, drive service excellence and mitigate risks to gain increased value from their vendors throughout the engagement life cycle.
As 3rd party vendor dependencies increase in use and complexity, vendor management is receiving more attention as a way for organisations to achieve a competitive advantage and make their outsourcing relationships part of their long-term success plan.
Many organisations still lack the know how in their business units how to successfully implement these day to day practices.
Attendees will learn the various roles and responsibilities, strategies to categorise and monitor vendors, and the cost benefits of implementing vendor management in their organisation.
