Why Should You Attend:

The continuing trend toward outsourcing non-core activities in Pharmaceuticals and Biologics has created a pressing need for companies to understand the strategic nature of outsourcing and the proper management of contractual relationships.

Selection of appropriate partners that will integrate well into your business is essential, as is the need to incorporate strong contractual agreements that underpin the needs of the working relationship.

This seminar aims to arm participants with the skills of strategic procurement, helping them understand how to segment their contractor and supplier base so that maximum impact is gained. Then, to present practical ways in which the operational elements can be built and managed to ensure the needs of their customers are fully represented through effective shared working practices – delivering quality, cost and lead-time benefits for the organizations they represent.
