This underscores the findings of international research conducted by the Centre for Advanced Procurement Studies (CAPS) in the USA, which found that that developing and managing value-adding relationships with suppliers is a cornerstone of world-class Procurement best practise and it is one of the 7 key Strategies they recommend that supply management leaders must follow over the next decade!

This important procurement discipline is the subject of a practical 3-hour Professional P&SM workshop being presented by two highly regarded subject matter experts on SRM and how the effective use of technology can power world-class operational procurement in your organisation.

Peter Alkema.jpgSRM will be explained step-by-step through a practical case study on how the Group Sourcing Department at Absa Bank, a member of the international Barclays Group, achieved massive savings over several years in implementing world-class procurement operational policies, procedures and systems.

Executives and managers of ERP and IT systems and Procurement and Supply Management Departments, (including BEE Supplier, Commodity and Sourcing Specialists) will:

• Gain insight into the latest developments in the specialised field of SRM.
• Learn how to go about adopting a highly recommended supplier management 'best practice' strategy.
