Practical collaborative procurement


Speaker to be announced

SBM groups are a force to be reckoned with; in an uncertain education sector in which those in school business management can often find themselves under resourced and without support – they are invaluable platforms for the exchange of knowledge, experience and tangible advice.

This session will explore the support SBM groups offer and the opportunity for collaboration in terms of learning, CPD and prourement.

Take home points:
This session will focus on:
  • identifying the barriers to effective collaborative procurement;
  • overcoming obstacles to collaboration and facilitating the robust relationships required to support these;
  • the impact of workingcollaboratively;
  • how to implement effective and sustainable collaborative relationships.
This session is for:
SBMs who are interested in practical collaborative working - in terms of learning, CPD and/or procurement.
