WPM 201 - Managing Relationships with a Fully Automated and Integrated System

Course unit(s): 0
The goal of the course is exposure to a fully automated and integrated stakeholder, vendor management, and procurement (SVP) system. A large percentage of a project manager’s job is spent communicating with both internal and external relationships, including all internal stakeholders, vendor management, and procurement. Students will trace the changing nature of how these relationships have been influenced by the technology available and how decision-making has been impacted by increased speed and efficiency and the identification of risk in the supply chain. Students will investigate the ways social enterprises engage with larger corporations, including corporate social responsibility (CSR) organizations. New insights from Big Data will be explored, as well as the use of machine learning/automated intelligence to continuously enhance and aggregate data and to improve the flow of information to all SVP parties. Vendor aggregation, negotiation tactics, savings, efficiency/compliance expansion of stakeholders, changes in procurement practices, and procurement key performance indicators (KPIs) will also be explored.
