We recently published a series focused on the use of non-price attributes to improve the sourcing and supplier selection process. And now, that series has spawned a webinar and a soon-to-be published report.
The webinar is next Wednesday May 30 at 2 pm ET (click here to register).
The webinar builds upon the initial series and looks at how the advances in eSourcing technologies over the past five years have made it much easier to incorporate varied and complex award criteria into a streamlined and automated sourcing process. If you are a Sourcing/Procurement pro who wants to (1) develop a more sophisticated sourcing organization, (2) source more complex categories, and (3) engage more stakeholders, this webinar is for you.
Here’s how it’s described:

Seasoned sourcing pros know that there is much more to awarding a contract than price. And yet, when they engage stakeholders on a new sourcing opportunity, they often face a classic push back why sourcing is not the right strategy to pursue: “There are too many non-price considerations to be accounted for with this category.”
Today, using non-price attributes to make an award decision is speaking the language of the Chief Procurement Officer. It has become a part of the fabric of a mature procurement organization and is a critical strategy used by Best-in-Class sourcing teams.
In this webinar, Andrew Bartolini of Ardent Partners will discuss the key non-price attributes that sourcing teams should be using to award new contracts to help generate ideas for those teams looking to develop more advanced sourcing strategies and add value to the organization’s sourcing process.
- The key non-price attributes used by sourcing teams to award new contracts
- How non-price parameters can drive advanced sourcing strategies
- The role of technology in leveraging non-price attributes to identify optimal suppliers for the sourcing
