Lunch and Learn – 22 February: Introduction to Should-Cost Analysis

The team at Acquire believe that Should-Cost Models are one of the most underutilised tools in getting the most from your supply arrangements. Whether it be used as a tool for negotiating a new service arrangement with a supplier, or as a way to validate that the price your organisation is paying for an existing arrangement is fair, having the skills and know how to develop a Should-Cost Model is extremely important where capacity and capability is often sourced from suppliers.

To assist our clients to start using Should-Cost Analysis in their day-to-day operations, the team at Acquire have developed a short session aimed to empower attendees to begin developing Should-Cost Models for the services contracts that they are responsible for.

We’ve found that a little bit of knowledge goes a long way and similar sessions have helped those attending better prepare for pricing discussions and negotiations with their suppliers, giving the opportunity for saving thousands from their supply arrangements by ensuring they’re paying the right price for the services that are required.

The lunch and learn event is called: Introduction to Should Cost Analysis, and the first session will be held in Brisbane on 22nd February 2017.
