Why this training is crucial for your organisation :

    For businesses, big data and advanced analytics have profound implications: in raising data-driven decision making to a new level, helping companies generate new insights, and enabling them to collaborate at scale. In the future your procurement team will be so deeply connected to every tier of its supply base that it will have access to all relevant data on cost structures, supply availability, lead times, financial and operational risks, service and quality metrics. This procurement team will be well-positioned to negotiate the “right” prices, instantaneously adapt its own planning, or switch to alternative suppliers in the event of supply shortages. It will proactively help suppliers improve deteriorating quality levels by spotting problems earlier and identifying their root causes.

    Driving Superior Value through Digital Procurement provides a strategic and competitive advantage to companies. This two-day workshop explores how to manage an optimal procurement function that delivers both business and procurement goals. It provides in depth knowledge for specialists operating in Procurement through a systematic approach and a controlled process in this unique function.

    Learn what world class Procurement do in an organisation and how you can better deliver your objectives and approaches. This workshop will help delegates become commercial specialists using leading edge tools and approach. Case studies and interactive workshops are used to illustrate the important considerations, and are all delivered by a CIPS approved and qualified trainer..
