Anywise conducted detailed market research to identify current and potential vendors and solution providers. Matching these possible vendors against both product and services taxonomy and creating opportunities to prepare for ‘speed dating’ style engagements at each event. Pre briefs and scoping meetings were held with both above the line (AHQ and CASG) staff and below the line (Industry Associations and interested potential vendors) prior to engagements at each event.
At each event, detailed meeting briefs were provided as well as summary / feedback sheets to support very busy meeting calendars.
AHQ and CASG developed a comprehensive understanding of the capabilities and capacities resident in the Australian Defence Supply Chain relevant to LMSB. In addition, participants were exposed to the capabilities in adjacent markets such as resources, mining and infrastructure. This activity lead to much more meaningful recommendations and discussions at Smart Buyer and significantly reduced the risks associated to the projects.
