Negotiation Ploys and Tactics: What They Don't Teach You in Procurement 101
This webinar is scheduled for one (1) 60-minute session by Masih Bahadori, CPPB.


Negotiation plays a key role in the day-to-day work of procurement professionals.  Unfortunately, most procurement training and materials on negotiation focus on abstract theories or general concepts that can be applied to any negotiation.  There is little focus on real-life negotiations that is specific to the field of procurement and can be utilized in the day-to-day work of procurement professionals.  This webinar seeks to fill this void by exploring the role of negotiation specific to the field of procurement.  Discussion will center on various ploys used by vendors to gain an advantage so procurement professional will be better equipped to recognize and counter such ploys.  In addition, various tactics will be covered that procurement professionals can use to increase their leverage during negotiations.
