Don't Miss Our Procurement Leadership Series
We Know Procurement
KEP is doing a 4-part series about procurement. Be on the lookout for it later this month. The first part, “Trust and Character – The New Bottom Line in Procurement” examines cost only strategies to show how procurement is about more than settling the lowest bid and about discovering the true value of productive, long-term, win-win relationships with great suppliers. We discuss the concerns that must be taken into account from engineering, quality assurance, manufacturing, and more. Another focus is learning how to be a great supplier relationship manager and knowing the risks that come with not having a relationship with the supplier – which includes knowing the importance of regulatory guidelines.
Stay tuned for these additions to our Leader Views Blog to learn more about trust and character in procurement, knowing your supplier, and the total cost of ownership from Joe Williamson, our Sr. Director of Global Sales and Customer Operations. Or, sign up for our monthly newsletter (below), which is filled with KEP and Industry news.
