Course description

Purchasing and Procurement Basics:

Purchasing and procurement functions are about much more than bringing goods and services into an organization. They are the foundation of strong, collaborative relationships with suppliers. Since many companies source products from around the globe more frequently than ever, a procurement manager needs strong capabilities. These skills cannot just be learned on the job: they need to be taught. As well, the value of procurement is now recognised as an integral part of cost control within the organization. In this course, students will learn the basics of procurement, including what a supply chain looks like, the purchasing cycle, essential tools and strategies for making the best purchasing relationships work, managing bids, and more.

The course was all I had hoped for and more - we booked an in house course for a group of our buyers and the course content was tailored to exactly what we wanted. We had a great balance of theory and also plenty of interactive activities that made the day really worthwhile.
