Workshop Subject : Building capability, capacity and support for supplier development

Supplier Development and Localisation is increasingly becoming an essential policy tool for industrial development and is viewed by regulators as a key instrument for assisting in growing economies and their local extractive and manufacturing sectors.

Functionally, Supplier Development & Localisation should rightfully sit within the Procurement Unit as a core component of Supplier Management. Having the right structure and design - as well as technology - Supplier Development and Localisation efforts can overwhelm procurement professionals that do not have the right capabilities, capacity and support for Supplier Development initiatives and programmes.

By attending this workshop you will learn how to build capability, capacity and support for your supplier development needs. You will learn how to assess your company's state of readiness to drive supplier development and localisation using practical approaches, unpacking real case studies and learning concepts that will help you deliver meaningful outcomes.
