Knowing what we want from our vendors from the outset of the relationship is the cornerstone of successful vendor management and relations. When you initiate a relationship with a vendor, keep these ten key points in the forefront of your discussions by establishing these expectations in your first meeting or second meeting. Establishing these expectations in the beginning of the relationship or during contract negotiations will exponentially increase the likelihood of a linked destiny relationship that will deliver high-quality results. These results will positively impact your organization's bottom line.
