Attention Senior Procurement Professionals...
Certified Master Procurement & Purchasing Specialist (CMPPS) (a.ka. Certified Chief Procurement Officer-CCPO)™ Training Course
How to Lead Your Procurement Team AND Add Value In Your Business with Advanced Procurement Strategies
Savvy Procurement leaders understand that Procurement involves so much more than Googling for potential suppliers, asking them for a quotation and then selecting the lowest-priced quotation presented.
First, you have to have a Procurement Strategy.
Doing things like asking for quotations, negotiating terms and price with suppliers are just tactics. Without a proper Procurement Strategy, doing these things is meaningless.
Having a good Procurement Strategy gives you the reason WHY you are doing these things (tactics).
And the beautiful thing is you don’t have to start from zero, you see there’s a formula (or framework if you like) that you can follow to setup your own Procurement Strategy and system for your business without having to re-create everything from nothing.
You just need to have access to this formula and framework…
…and that’s exactly what you get with the Certified Master Procurement & Purchasing Specialist (CMPPS)™ training.
Glad I attended...The course was presented professionally and is internationally recognised as a good course.
