TOPIC: How your procurement solution killed your mojo

FREE Webinar: 18 May 2017, 10.00am AEST

You implemented a procurement solution with promise of greener pastures but your tool is essentially dead in the water. User adoption is poor, clunky processes seem to be getting worse, supplier’s aren’t enabling with any sense of urgency and you’re only raking in minimal cost savings. The slap in the face is that your implementation was textbook; strong change management initiatives, smooth deployment and a ‘successful’ delivery. So what went wrong?… To be honest, quite a lot and it’s all to do with not recognising the traps that are hidden in plain sight.

Tradeshift want to catch you up on some of the fatal mistakes we see when customers source and implement procurement solutions. The braintrust aim to bedunk the myths and recommend strategies that you can adopt to avoid certain mojo death.

This FREE webinar was kindly sponsored by Open Windows

Less than six months from now, the landscape for contracting directly with small suppliers will change dramatically for all procurement professionals currently using standard form contracts with small vendors. The Unfair Contract Terms Act 2016 (UCTA) includes new regulations to all template based contracts to purchase any goods and services from small suppliers (less than 20 employees) for contract values up to $1m.

Before 12th November 2016, three key questions need to be addressed by all professional buyers;

  1. Do you risk having UNFAIR contracts with your small suppliers after 12th November and not even knowing it?
  2. How should you be amending all your standard contracts with small suppliers before 12thNovember to become compliant with the new UCTA?
  3. What help will you need to get all your contracts compliant by the deadline?

Join Suzy Cairney, senior partner from HOLDING REDLICH, one of Australia’s top commercial law firm’s, for a brief overview of the new Unfair Contract Terms Act, its implications and what it could mean for you.

Powerful Procurement: effective negotiation skills that get results 

Cooperation and alignment are in, confrontation is out.  In a world of changing priorities, the old ways of doing business just don’t cut it anymore.  But if cooperation is in, how can you create competitive tension to unlock value?  Effective negotiation skills are vital – not just for negotiations with suppliers, but also for managing internal stakeholders.  They are also pretty handy at home for negotiating with builders, teenagers, family and neighbours – because in business and in life, you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.
