So many businesses have critical services underpinned by a contract with 3rd parties, but how well are these relationships managed until things go wrong, or contract renewal is approaching?

Pro-active management of your companies supply chain is so valuable in ensuring you receive the services you pay for, to the agreed timescales as well as to pro-actively prepare for contract renewals to put you, the customer, in the driving seat of the negotiations.

This presentation will go through the benefits of managing your 3rd party contracts, the issues that can be avoided and the benefits gained.

Richard will cover some simple techniques and tracking methodologies. Also, the measures to ensure you can keep your supplier, and the relationship honest and outcome focussed.

Attendees will leave the presentation with the early warning signs to spot, address and mitigate issues before they arise, along with some simple headline areas to track and monitor.
