Ahhh, Elvis, he sang it so well! The pain, the agony, the suffering of a broken heart!! The impact when it goes wrong, the heartache, the emotional drain of it all….If only we found a way to understand the why, know what to do about it, and how we can make sure we can mend it! And the joy when we do find a common ground, the solution, a way forward.
Love me “Tender”, and tender needs to be understood here as “formal, structured invitation to suppliers to submit a bid to supply products or service”.
Buying is a rational but equally an emotional process, and the song can be recited from both sides of the coin. Both buyers and sellers need to understand the other side first before they can make the proposal stick! The process, and it is a process, is used and abused a lot of times to disengage, to blame, to hide behind when in reality, it should be a help, not a hindrance.
Mastery Matters, so let’s demystify the Tender process and start loving it! From both sides, so that ultimately, it is not the process but the value that buyers and sellers can offer each other, will result in the optimum decision.
The Sourcing and Tendering one-day Skillnet course will focus on the rational side of the process and will show you the roadmap from start to finish of a “tender” process, and you will love it!
