Many organisations are turning to external vendors to help them deliver projects. Any time an organisation outsources something they don’t have the in-house skills to deliver, they become a client. A good client-vendor relationship can be the difference between the project being a success or a failure.
This masterclass will teach you what it means to be a good client and how your interactions with vendors can help ensure your project’s success. You’ll learn from Associate Professor Brad Carey, drawing insights from research, real life case studies and best practice examples. By the end of this class, you’ll know how to improve internal project management processes to achieve the best value on your projects.
