Re-think your internal relationships

The quality of supply managers’ internal working relationships matters to the business; both good and bad aspects of those relationships ripple through to the company’s bottom line. Based on the latest CAPS Research report, Procurement’s Role in Creating Extraordinary Internal Customer Experience, Service Delivery, and Business Performance, our researchers took a look at key marketing concepts – customer orientation, market orientation, and a relationship marketing approach – that supply management leaders can leverage in their interactions with internal customers.

We know that supply management is under tremendous pressure to contribute to superior business performance, but reframing the internal customer experience can lead to win-win outcomes for all involved.

We encourage you to invite your internal customers to join you for this webinar, establishing a platform for positive interactions going forward.
