Description

Vendor selection for a project can be a very daunting process. This is especially true when coordinating this process for key stakeholders that may have a full understanding of what they want, but are limited with understanding the capabilities of the massive pool of vendors.

Outside of that struggle, there are other negative impacts that can occur when the wrong vendor is identified. Things like poor quality, horrible interactions and lack of follow-through are just a few things that can occur with the wrong vendor.

This course, Vendor Selection in 8 Steps, was developed to help those tasked with selecting a vendor for a project and will provide some type of structure and process to be successful in identifying a vendor.

This 30-minute course has 10 short, but thorough lessons, and comes packaged with all the templates and tools you need to get started.

My name is Theresa Clemons, and my goal is always to share my knowledge when possible. I am a business owner and I have a Masters of Administration degree from Northern Arizona University (NAU), where my emphasis areas were leadership and public management.

My key focus areas are in project management, business analysis, process improvement, and leadership studies. With that, I am always looking for opportunities to build others up and educate when possible.

I look forward to developing some key great relationships with my students. Hope to see you in class!
