Strategic sourcing essentials

Some organizations relegate their procurement department to administrative tasks like getting quotes and cutting POs. Others give this department the title of Strategic Sourcing and add in the responsibility of also managing the RFP process and negotiating with suppliers. But the role’s still largely transactional and reactive, lacking the tools needed by Procurement professionals to align the supply chain with organizational objectives and competitive market positioning.

In this course, we’ll take you through 6 modules designed to give you those tools and elevate your role into a truly strategic function. Each module’s been recorded so you can go through the content at your own pace. And you’ll be given a 1-year subscription to our eLearning platform, so you can re-watch the course content and sign up for additional courses on related topics such as Elite Negotiation Strategies, Vendor Management and Category Planning.

Thanks and we can’t wait to see you in the course.
