Dr. Dean T. Kashiwagi will review Best Value Procurement. The model, which is based on leadership principles, drives accountability and efficiency through the use of measurement. It has been implemented in over 1,500 projects across the globe with total procurement over 5.7 billion dollars. These approaches have been most frequently utilized in the procurement of construction and services, but are applicable to change initiatives like new information systems, new professional services, move to a 4PL logistics provider, outsourcing, and rationalization of suppliers in all categories. Dr. Kashiwagi will describe the Performance Information Procurement System which provides clients with a tool to identify and select the Best Value vendors for their projects, based on performance instead of just lowest price. Unlike other Best Value methods out there, PIPS also has mechanisms to measure the vendor’s performance throughout the duration of the project.
Dr. Kashiwagi, a noted public speaker, is a professor at Arizona State University and a leader in Best Value Procurement.
Members of the Delaware Public Purchasing Association, Project Management Institute, and APICS will attend, also, so there will be opportunities to share insights with other professionals.
Who Should Attend? This seminar is geared for supply management and project management professionals who wish to learn better methods to drive accountability and efficiency through the use of measurement to get better business results.
Participants will earn 3 points towards certification maintenance
