Vendor Management and Request For Proposal (RFP) Process
Selecting the right vendor and vendor solution is crucial for businesses. Since vendors are not under your organization’s control, there is inherent risk in selecting and maintaining vendor services and solutions.
This course takes you through steps to avoid the issues and risks around the RFP Process and helps you determine what deliverables need to be included in the RFP and how to develop those deliverables. The workshops will provide practice and feedback on those deliverables and set you up for success on your next RFP project.
