Why Choose this Training Course?

This dynamic training course in Dubai explores the process of identifying, selection and negotiating with the suppliers that will help your organisation to be successful. No organisation can be successful without appointing the best suppliers, and ensuring that contractual agreements maximise value for money. By applying the right processes for selecting suppliers, costs will be controlled, quality will improve and organisational efficiency will increase.

Suppliers will seek to optimise their return and need to be engaged in a way that ensures an appropriate relationship for the short and long term. Having the right knowledge and skills in tendering, procurement and negotiation is essential for any organisation to be successful, and requires appropriate planning and preparation rather than luck and optimism.
