Create Competitive Advantage Through Strategic Sourcing and Strong Vendor Relationship Management

You’re either contributing to the top line or your putting jobs on the line.

The vital roles of procurement and outsourcing professionals have evolved to include creating value while continuing to involve driving savings and effecting cost efficiency. Endeavoring to create value necessitates enhanced collaborations and partnerships. If you want to garner internal allies and secure external collaborators you must foster healthy relationships.

ExL Events’ 2nd Procurement and Outsourcing Summit is the only life science event tailored to improve clinical and manufacturing processes for procurement and outsourcing leaders. Attendees will emerge from the summit with techniques and strategies to masterfully establish and manage alliances as a means to contribute to the bottom and top lines of their companies. The information and practical tips from leaders and experts that comprise the preeminent speaking faculty will provide delegates with actionable plans for improvement to begin the day they return from the conference — if not sooner.

Sessions on the first morning of the conference focus on managing relationships with internal allies and afternoon sessions feature topics on implementation and operation. On day two of the conference, sessions are organized thematically into data, innovation and technology; external collaboration; and analysis.
