Select and negotiate with suppliers
Selecting the right suppliers makes a major difference to the cost and quality of your firm’s products and services, especially when your company is expanding. Getting the best value for money involves achieving the right balance between cost and factors such as quality, reliability and service.
You need to be clear about what you are looking for and what your objectives are in any negotiation. The best deals leave both sides happy as part of building a successful working relationship.
