Purchasing and Procurement

logoProcurement is a fundamental function in more or less any business. By virtue of having a large impact on a company's costs, all processes related to the sourcing, purchasing, storing and/or transport of goods and services have always been - and continue to be - of primary importance to the competitiveness and overall success of a business.

So how can you ensure that you add as much value as possible to your organisation in your purchasing, procurement or supply chain role? Well, training is always a good option, but the choices out there are virtually endless. This forum is thus dedicated to questions and discussion regarding procurement training, including what to study, how to study and where to study it - have your say in one of the threads below or start your own.
