IMPROVE YOUR CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIPS AND DELIVER SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS!  Supply Chain Management (SCM) is now a fact of life and presents a phenomenal opportunity to bring value to your organization. According to ISM-The Institute of Supply Management, the experts in Supply Management, has stated that every 1% that you reduce cost or achieve efficiency, this equates to 5% in additional sales. One of the key ways that the procurement and supply management professional can optimize this value is in the contracting process. In contrast to your contracts and supplier agreements merely addressing what either party can’t do (based on violating key laws), what if your contracts also addressed what both parties can do (such as mutual cost-reductions and value-added programs)? This NIMSC Masterclass explores the latest methodologies in contracting based on both academic research and actual practice in Fortune 100 fi rms which can both protect you legally, as well as add maximum value to your firm.
