Course objective

Procurement can play a crucial role in organisations achieving their objectives, but only if it is fit for purpose.

This course will equip delegates with the tools to manage the procurement process for goods and services efficiently and in line with international best practices. After covering all stages of the procurement cycle, on the final two days the course will focus on category management - a contemporary concept in procurement management. Participants will acquire the knowledge and skills to introduce category management in their organisations.

Delivered using a highly interactive style, with practical examples, case studies, and simulations, these two weeks will enable delegates to confidently apply what they have learned when they return to the office.
