About this course
“A penny saved is a penny earned – Benjamin Franklin” This statement has for a long time been the driver of many companies in regards to their cost structure and their targets set for the procurement / purchasing divisions. But is this really true?
This course will lay the foundation of good procurement practices while at the same time touch base on tying the procurement function into strategy and long-term supplier relationships.
Key focus of the course will not only be on traditional procurement practises for eg cost models, setting up supplier KPIs but also on establishing a framework for conducting procurement exercises as well as creating insights on value creation.
You should today be a buyer or new manager who has been working within procurement or purchasing whether direct or indirect categories. You should see yourself as an individual who has been focusing on reducing costs and leveraging volumes but also now seen the opportunity of capturing value.
