OVERVIEW

Transforming the procurement function requires commitment of management, a rethinking of strategies, a changed approach to concepts, and adoption of new ideas. Challenging, as it may, the approach calls for a total rethink of our past and chart a new pathway to procurement success. It consumes a lot of time, entails breaking down barriers between internal groups, demands a new approach to suppliers, and requires significant investment in resources like people, training, analysis, measurement, technology, and suppliers.

 

To make a significant impact to the organization’s future success, procurement’s contribution has to be reviewed for lethargy, malaise and inefficient practices. In this course, we will look at some of these problems, understand how to resolve critical issues and pave new pathways to old problems.
