Course Description

Today's organisations need to be truly customer oriented in order to ensure growth and sustainability. Customer orientation results in customer satisfaction; better products and services; an enhanced reputation and greater customer loyalty. It takes the involvement and cooperation of every functional area, team, and individual in the organisation to achieve this!

When groups and individuals truly partner with their internal and external suppliers and customers, they enjoy a greater sense of satisfaction, better relationships and better feedback from others.

Developing Productive Partnerships provides learners with an opportunity to review their organisation's mission and their role in accomplishing it. They evaluate how they work with partners in the work chain, and identify the roles and responsibilities of each partner.
