Training description

We invite you to a professional workshop for buyers based on the proprietary Eveneum Negotiation Compass® method!

Negotiations are a rather stressful process, both for the buyer and the supplier. Especially if negotiations are based on beliefs and opinions, and less on data analysis and proper preparation. We invite Buyers who believe that in their case, more than just a power play is needed to reach an agreement.

Buyer's Negotiation is a workshop especially useful for buyers, category leaders, purchasing managers and directors who want to implement SRM into their negotiations. Exercises are tailored to both direct and indirect procurement.

If your company's success largely depends on multidimensional relationship with suppliers, you buy parts, services or you are responsible for the new investments, then you are in the right place! The Buyer's Negotiation workshop will help you to systematise approach towards suppliers, strengthen effective implementation of your purchasing strategy, and help you build negotiation strategies tailored to the type of relationship you want to achieve.
