Better Procurement - 'Helping Organisations Buy Better' course.
This course is designed to provide a range of procurement skills for staff who have to carry out organisational sourcing and procurement activities from time to time, but for whom purchasing is not a core element of their role. The day will be spent looking at the procurement cycle from identifying the need, developing a specification, identifying suppliers, negotiating, dealing with sales tactics, awarding the business and managing ongoing contracts and supplier relationships. The day will be interactive with the use of case studies, group discussions and DVDs. The course will look at the differences between buying goods and services, including consultancy and professional services.
The course will be delivered by a procurement practitioner who has over thirty years of procurement experience in the both the commercial and not-for-profit worlds, and who currently works in procurement for a household name international charity.
The full day course will be run in Central London, at a cost of £180.00 including VAT.
If you would like to be notified of forthcoming dates, please drop a brief email to email@example.com.
