This experience-based seminar will provide purchasing professionals with a specific road map for using e-commerce tools in their strategic sourcing initiatives.  You will explore various enabled technologies and correlate them with your personal, specific sourcing practices and initiatives.  You will learn how to design and sell your program “in house” and to your suppliers.  Learn how to deal with “change management”, develop contingency plans and determine measurable, performance targets.

If you have already selected all of your technology needs, then invite your key suppliers or strategic partners to join you…Suppliers will also greatly benefit from participating in this workshop, which will provide them with the core logic, necessary for understanding and responding to each of these purchasing concepts.

Lori and Jan bring extensive supply-chain experience in the automotive, retail, consumer products and aerospace industries.  Attend this workshop and learn from a “hands-on”, real world perspective.  This course is eligible and approved for 3.75 C.E.U. points from ISM.
