Have you ever wondered if you are operating a truly effective supply chain?
Well, if you are only networking and communicating with your immediate providers, I’d suggest not.
Government policy like the Social procurement – Victorian Government approach demands real jobs and business growth opportunities by expanding the market and potential for small and medium businesses. You need to be supporting local industry development, social enterprises, indigenous businesses, and employment opportunities for the disadvantaged and disabled members of the community.
You can no longer apply the same old thinking to new contractual obligations or presume you can keep getting away with saying something in the tender and doing something else in delivery. The answer is not at your desk, it’s out in the community. And if you don’t work smarter now, you and the community are losing out.
Struber has developed a hybrid of Procurement and Community engagement, and it is an approach we have been testing since 2014. Struber’s social license training program helps project teams learn how to establish, build, and maintain the community acceptance that makes sure everyone wins.
Our hands-on, practical 2-day program uses innovative methods that help you strategically apply communications and engagement to build social license for real projects.
It helps you understand the supply and demand of the community, and the supply and demand of the project. The mission is to create joint success.
Driving responsible procurement starts at the top and must be supported by a community-minded culture. You can’t do your job without the supply chain. So, provide clarity, ask the right questions, and coach them to get ready.
Stop the false promises, create and execute responsible procurement. It is time to work smarter to create real opportunities for the smaller and sometimes invisible fish that can be part of your catch.
