Proven practical workshops
We facilitate the learning journey by exposing people to clever practices, strategies and case studies. We encourage them to share their experiences and learn from one another.
Many people are 'thrown into the deep-end' of the tendering process. If you find yourself in the situation of being involved in issuing or responding to a Request for Tender (or other procurement documentation) with no previous experience, we can help. We facilitate hands-on (practical) workshop exercises so no-one suffers death-by-PowerPoint!

Defining Robust Requirements
Defining robust requirements for the procurement of goods and services is core to any Approach To the Market. Overly prescriptive requirements exclude innovative and alternative solutions. Vague requirements often lead to gaps in scope or function. Defining Requirements is a one day hands-on (practical) workshop designed to build the skills and knowledge required to facilitate and develop a clear and concise specification or statement of requirements.
