Successful contract and vendor management cuts costs, improves business performance and enhances vendor-client relationships. It wins the respect of others inside and outside your organisation and improves your professional standing. In short, it helps you do a better job. Over two articles I am going to look the four components of success: preparation, negotiation, contracts and vendor management.
