Quadrem Teaches Strategic Sourcing to Mining Companies in Onsite Workshopadmin
Thursday, August 7th 2008
Quadrem Professional Services is offering companies in the Mining and Metals industries a new on-site, two-and-a-half-day class, “Strategic Sourcing: Seven Steps to Sourcing Success.” This workshop helps procurement and sourcing teams identify qualified suppliers, optimally manage RFP events, and negotiate effective contracts.
The class agenda includes a lecture for each of seven modules followed by a case study demonstration. Then, the participants are broken down into working groups where teams are assigned a commodity to work through the process.
“Strategic Sourcing: Seven Steps to Sourcing Success” is based on in-depth, global experience with the sourcing process of more than a dozen mining and natural resources companies. It is recommended for: supply managers who currently touch or will touch the supplier selection process, finance managers who are responsible for capital expenditures and budgets, and operations managers who rely on suppliers as a key part of their business.
Founded in 2000 by some of the world’s largest mining and metals companies, Quadrem (http://www.quadrem.com) delivers “on demand” solutions that enable procurement executives and their suppliers to automate processes, improve performance and reduce supply chain costs. Quadrem has built one of the largest electronically connected supplier networks, so its customers can connect once to the community rather than invest in multiple one-to-one connections.
