3:00 PM Presentation: Manage the Best Kickoff Meetings to Strengthen Successful Relationships from the Outset

Procurement doesn’t receive the deliverables themselves, so if clients aren’t documenting the process properly there won’t be a way to bring it to the vendor’s attention until it’s too late.
