Getting to Yes!  The building blocks to successful partnerships

If you are aligned with your suppliers and treat them as partners, both businesses will experience higher success rates, decreased risks and enhanced collaboration and innovation. Greater value can be achieved for both businesses, something that would be difficult to achieve if operating independently.  We are excited to bring to you a panel of buyers and suppliers to talk about their best practices around supplier relationship management and how to achieve success on both sides of the table.
