Description

Corporate purchasing developments have been stuck in a tactical silo, mostly operating separately from other company functions and, for the most part, their suppliers.  Supplier development can play a pivotal role in breaking down the walls of this silo and in doing so dramatically increase the positive impact a purchasing department can have on company financials.  This presentation will review in detail several examples of these impacts. 

Attendee Takeaways:
•    Understand how to change purchasing from tactical to a more strategic
     arm of a company’s resources.
•    Be able to detail financial impacts of supplier development’s support of
     suppliers.
•    Provide a template for companies wanting to transition to more
     progressive supply management strategies and processes.
•    Gain appreciation for how purchasing must evolve over time to adjust to
     changes in business and markets.
