Building Successful Vendor Partnerships. Small strategies that make a big difference.

Making sure our buildings are safe and productive is our number one priority in facility management. As FMs, we know we can’t do it alone, we rely heavily on our vendors to help us create successful environments. It is our vendors who get us out of jams, fix the unexpected broken things and meet our organization’s daily demands. We need our vendors and they need us; but managing them can be a challenge. This session will provide insights and ideas that can easily be implemented and that can have a significant positive impact on your vendor relationships.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will be challenged to re-think how they communicate and manage their vendors
2. Gain insights into the power of measuring performance.
3. Learn simple tools and techniques for creating a mutually beneficially partnership with your vendors
4. Describe a series of small strategies that can each have a significant impact on positive vendor relationships
