How To Do Better Deals - Critical Concepts You Need To Know

90 minutes with Joe Auer


Experience has shown that the great successes achieved in negotiating better deals are those that are supported by senior management and the end users of the solution(s) being acquired. To encourage that level of support, ICN's Executive/End User Briefing provides an orientation to the unique challenges of best practices procurement.

The briefing is designed for senior to mid-level management and focuses on the integral role of effective procurement in helping them meet overall business objectives. Time and again, prudent business practices during the technology procurement process have proven to save companies millions of dollars while avoiding unpleasant surprises and costly disputes with suppliers.
