To meet the increased requirements for growth for any organisation, increased focus on supplier relationships is vital. There are often complex business situations to be resolved which require employees who interact with suppliers do so in a professional manner. One way to find new business solutions and act professionally is to acquire knowledge of negotiation techniques. As a buyer, this should be a ”core business” activity.
How often do you actually train your negotiating skills? Perhaps it is time to train in an environment where you can go through the whole negotiation process and get tips on how you, as a professional negotiator, should behave. This training will give you the opportunity.
