This is an intermediate-level course providing participants with the key skills for successful outsourcing and vendor management. The ability to manage vendors and third-party suppliers is essential for every manager nowadays. Projects inevitably involve equipment vendors, subcontractors or both, whereas more and more operation is outsourced to third-party service providers. It is important to excel in every aspect of a vendor management cycle starting from make-or-buy / in-source or outsource decision, vendor identification and selection, service transition, to managing the vendor over the life of a contract. This course covers different skills required during the various phases of a procurement cycle. Participants learn from lectures, case studies and exercises to master the knowledge and skills in working effectively with vendors to accomplish key business objectives.
