Topic Summary: Procurement negotiations involve far more than haggling for better prices. Instead, purchasing professionals must often negotiate aggressively on price, while crafting complex deals, that ensure the delivery high quality products and services to their organizations. They need to create partnerships and gain priority with powerful vendors, while adhering to regulations and company directives, and at the same time negotiate favorable terms for their companies. In addition to the external negotiations with vendors, procurement professionals often need to negotiate internally, so as to be brought into deals earlier, and to be given more leverage to negotiate. This session provides strategies, skills, and tips for negotiating effectively in this complex environment.
