The outline is;
Purchasing is a vital area for modern business, and increasingly the difference between successful and failed organisations. Purchasing and Buying teams used to be seen as about processing paperwork, but it is now understood that they are key to ensuring that the whole organisation has the right equipment and services, has costs under control, and can deliver the right Quality and Added Value. This requires teams with a complete set of Professional Purchasing Skills, who know where and how they can add value to their organisations. This workshop explores all the skills need by Professional Purchasers, and helps delegates to practice and refine their skills in a no risk environment. Delegates will learn how to:

  • Match their activities to the needs of the organisations
  • Select the right purchasing approach for each purchase
  • Write appropriate invitations to Tender
  • Select suppliers for short and long term success
  • Manage suppliers
  • Implement measurement of suppliers
  • Negotiate contracts
