Theme of the day: Just imagine for a moment that you are half way through one of your most important projects and everything is running smoothly. Suddenly, one of your key contractors informs you that they are unable to finish that job, deliver that product, or provide that service!
What next? Well, come and hear how procurement crisis professionals can expertly salvage the ‘situation’, and how business savvy lawyers with effective strategic and lateral thinking can play a valuable role.
Why you should attend: Achieve better results when things go wrong. Build combat strategies. Apply creative techniques to rectify harmful problems.
Who should attend: This day is appropriate for professionals at all levels who want to enhance their crisis management skills and their ability to take control in moments of chaos when a procurement exercise or contract goes wrong, or out of control.
