Strategic Sourcing professionals have done a magnificent job at implementing the P2P process. And, as a result they save millions each year. But, management wants more savings or value from the dollar spent without giving you additional people or technology. How do you squeeze out more with the resources you have?

By using QA (quality assurance) methods the Strategic Sourcing function can increase the value they get from suppliers and reduce their own P2P workload. Overlooking the use of QA can expose you to criticism while using QA can position you favorable with business managers.

In this presentation we will:

  • Explain how the use of QA methods empowers Strategic Sourcing to increase value from its suppliers
  • Explain the basic QA methods that are applied
  • Based on case studies we will discuss when QA is needed, where to get the resources, and how QA has been successful.
