About the webinar

Consultancy services are genuinely different to any other type of spend category because requirements are discretionary, not always predictable and can often be highly politicised. Internal clients need to be as clear as possible about what they are seeking to achieve and be wary of being potentially blindsided by the urgency of their business needs. Procurement professionals need to tread carefully when considering the most appropriate commercial model, contract structure and negotiating strategies. In this webinar participants will hear a range of insight about:

  • Understanding the challenges inherent in buying consulting services effectively
  • Appreciating what makes consulting services different to other types of purchase
  • Understanding the dynamics that are common to the way that organisations deploy, consume and sell consultancy services
