Leave it to Charles Dominick to point out the fact that has been right in front of our faces but never called out by name. Why does procurement have so much trouble getting along with our internal stakeholders? Here’s why: a sourcing project that took three months culminates in a supplier relationship that may need to be managed for three years. What could POSSIBLY go wrong?!?! Join this webinar to get insight into topics ranging from identifying ongoing cost reduction opportunities, leveraging suppliers as a source of ideas, renegotiating obsolete deals, and more!
