Supplier Relationship Management
Technology leaders and professionals are expected to deliver optimal business outcomes while meeting the multiple needs of their stakeholders which can prove even more challenging within a remote environment, which can lead to additional risks of issues to deliver outcomes for the needs of the customer and stakeholders if relationships are not managed effectively.
This supplier management Special Interest Group (SIG) monthly meetup has been designed for member organisations to hear how peers have altered their stakeholder management approaches, tools and techniques for the virtual environment, and learn what methods have proven a real success. The session aims to:
1. Examine SRM members stakeholder challenges and successes through knowledge sharing on approaches, tools, and techniques used.
2. Share best practices to engage and manage stakeholders in virtual environments, such as persuasion techniques to build stakeholder support.
3. Establish best ways to deal with difficulties such as stakeholder rivalry and politics associated with managing multi-suppliers.

CITF’s Gender Balance, Diversity and Inclusion Special Interest Group (SIG) is an action and results orientated group of technologists from our member organisations who want to share their rich perspective and insights on the issue of women, diversity and inclusion within technology. The group was established in 2014 and quickly realised that the challenges relating to female talent needs to be addressed in a much wider context of diversity and inclusion.
As part of its actions in 2019, the group embarked upon an initiative of collecting real-life stories, recommendations and practical guidance on how to challenge the status quo and how to improve a diverse talent pipeline. We are delighted to showcase CITF’s Inclusion and Diversity guide, modestly called the “Good Practice Guide”.
We would like to thank all the organisations who took part in contributing to the formation of the guide, sharing some truly insightful points.
