Putting Suppliers at the Center of Your Organization

Historically, procurement has tended to look at two linked but separate process cycles - the category management process and the purchase-to-pay process. But when we think about how we can achieve competitive advantage in our organizations, suppliers must be at the heart of this.

There is a strong argument for looking at what we call the supplier lifecycle process and management of that lifecycle. That incorporates everything from supplier onboarding to performance management and supplier-driven innovation.

In this webinar, we look at the strong argument for using what we call the supplier lifecycle process and management of that lifecycle. Study everything from supplier on-boarding to performance management and supplier-driven innovation. Learn how the different elements fit together and how this can change procurement processes, activities and thinking.

You will learn:

  • Understanding the role of suppliers
  • Creating competitive advantage
  • Supplier lifecycle management versus traditional approaches
  • The elements of SLM
  • What does this mean in practice; key take-aways
