May Monthly Meeting - Nestle Business Excellence - The importance of Effective Stakeholder Management
Nestle has always supported a decentralized structure in order to stay close to the local consumer and maintain agility in execution, but recognized the need to better leverage their size and scale. To that end they introduced the Nestle Business Excellence initiative. Douglas Main will be discussing the implementation of that initiative in the Canadian market and the importance of stakeholder management.
Following the paper airplane design networking activity, our speaker for the evening Ellie Braham related some of her own experiences with Vendor Management. We all manage stakeholders for our projects, so why should our vendors be treated any differently. Managing that relationship even outside of an ongoing project can prevent future problems and make things easier for you the next time you have to work with them on a project.
