Why Read This
Sourcing and vendor management (SVM) organizations are the professional link between the internal business demand and the external supply resources. SVM professionals have to engage with business executives to turn their expectations into valued deliverables. Clearly understanding business expectations will enable the SVM professional to build and run an SVM organization (SVMO) that constantly delivers value, is trusted by the business stakeholders, and matches the business' needs with suppliers' delivery capabilities. This report is designed to help you achieve stakeholder buy-in for your SVMO.
