Addressing skills/capabilities vital to effective procurement
Check out the following courses which are taking place shortly:
Lean Agile Procurement Credential 1
21st to 24th June (1 x 1 hour technical set up then 3 x 4 hours 9.00am to 1.00pm AET)
Organisations are increasingly recognising that to get ahead (or even to remain competitive) they need to be faster and more flexible. While this trend already had good momentum, the COVID 19 crisis has seen the need for speed and innovation supercharged.
To achieve these goals many organisations are adopting, or exploring, the “agile” business philosophy. But what does this mean for procurement? And how can procurement become agile?
29th June to 1st July ( 1 x 1 hour technical set up then 3 x 4 hours 8.30am to 12.30pm AET)
We learn best by doing, when we feel safe to make mistakes. Trusted Negotiator Online Bootcamp is an intensive and fully immersive learning and development environment designed to produce deep understanding of key knowledge, provide practical experience in its application and build confidence in implementation.
Become the CPO of your Category
9th, 16th & 23rd July (3 x 4 hours 1.00pm to 5.00pm AET)
This workshop first takes you through what Category Management is and its lead role. We then explore some of the common elements – understanding your supply base, segmenting options, and knowing the category markets and how to leverage them. It is a hands-on workshop where you will analyse your current or potential category, and take a few deep dives into the analytics and market intelligence CatMans use to become a category leader and trusted advisor in their organisations.
The Innovation in Procurement Masterclass
15th July 9.00am to 2.00pm ONLINE
With effective innovation, your procurement activities can improve both their efficiency and service level effectiveness. This course will unpack innovation into its core elements and deliver practical tools and frameworks for implementing innovation in procurement and supply activities. There are many benefits from becoming ‘systematically innovative’ including improving performance and also attracting/retaining talented staff.
The Strategic Procurement Leadership Programme
19th & 30th July LIVE in Melbourne
This is a real opportunity, and a surprisingly rare one in a crowded training market, to genuinely uplift your strategic thinking capability in a procurement context. Delegates will leave this workshop with practical tools and techniques that enable them to begin practicing a more strategic approach to procurement immediately, and with a new perspective on how to deliver genuinely strategic procurement relevant to your organisations marketing strategy.
