This course is based on the findings from a recent year-long study of how progressive commercial companies are applying performance-based sourcing to improve supplier performance—at a lower price!
The program will fundamentally change your approach to procuring outsource services such as third-party logistics, supply chain management service, IT support, and facilities management.
