Objectives

Objectives:

Although the impact of digitalisation is not new, the rise of digital technologies has accelerated the pace of disruption in virtually every industry and does profoundly change the supplier and customer-facing roles.

This course provides a view of digital transformation in business markets and focusses on two functions, which are at the core of value creation in Business-to-Business companies: purchasing and selling.

Nonetheless, before discussing the digital impact on those two major functions, core concepts and strategic perspectives in purchasing and selling are presented and discussed with students.

At the end of this course, students should,


  • Understand the fundamentals of purchasing and selling in BtoB;
  • Critically assess the role played by business customers and suppliers in business firms;
  • Understand major digital trends & transformation in B2B;
  • Examine the concept of “supplier/ customer relationships” and how it is now embedded in the digital transformation;
  • Analyze how procurement and sales strategies are evolving at the digital age;
  • Examine Strategic customer Management as a specific organizational feature;
