Private: Professional Purchasing Skills:

Purchasing is a vital area for modern business, and increasingly is 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 and appropriate Management approaches, who know where and how they can add value to their organisations. This workshop explores all the skills need by Professional Purchasers and Purchasing Managers, and helps delegates to practice and refine their skills in a no risk environment.

Participants will develop the following competencies:

  • Match their activities to the needs of the organisation
  • Select the right purchasing approach for each purchase
  • Write appropriate invitations to Tender
  • Select suppliers for short and long term success
  • Manage suppliers
  • Negotiate with suppliers
  • Manage cross-functional purchasing approaches
  • Measure and Improve Purchasing Performance

This programme aims to enable participants to achieve the following objectives: 

  • Understand the role of Professional Purchasers
  • Learn about and practice the key skills Purchasers need to have
  • The essential requirements for Purchasing Management
  • Team structures and roles
  • The benefits of improved purchasing

The main goal of this programme is to provide participants with an intensive grounding in the theory and practice of modern Purchasing and Purchasing Management. The programme has been designed to cover an array of essential Purchasing and Management skills while focusing on those that are most critical to personal and business success. The emphasis of the programme will be on the most powerful methods and proven techniques for improving personal effectiveness.
