Workshop B: Supplier and Contract Management Essentials

What’s on the agenda?

There’s a difference between wanting effective supplier and contract management and actually delivering it! With Australian businesses relying more and more on outsourcing and suppliers than ever before, better management of processes, technology and relationships is integral to the function - and therefore the organisation’s - success. In this session you will deep dive into the what, why and how.

What will I learn and take away?

  • Proactive approaches to supplier management for better outcomes
  • Hands on management of contracts - setting milestones, deadlines and outcomes
  • Technology dive - when automated contract management is the answer
  • Managing risk – late delivery, poor quality, cost blow outs
  • What to do when things go wrong!
