Building The Foundation - Fundamentals of Procurement

Date: September 15, 2016

Time: 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM

Instructor: Melissa Drew, PMP

Credits: 7 continuing education hours

Price: $350

Course Description: Procurement organizations continue to recruit new talent. Sometimes that’s done within the procurement area, but often it can be from other areas of the organization. These new procurement professionals aren’t always provided the full training and education that can help ensure their success. This one day workshop is focused on providing new procurement professionals with a solid foundation to build upon or providing existing procurement professionals the opportunity to expand on their experience through learning a new procurement category.

This course will teach a procurement methodology using a real work category, which can be used as a template.

Topics Covered: An introduction and expectations of today’s procurement organizations will be discussed.  Participants will review strategic opportunity assessments in conjunction with spend visibility and learn how they work together.  You will learn how to translate the meaning of the data to develop a Request For Proposal (RFP) strategy.  A review of spend data, category profiles, and supplier profiles are included in this course. The attendees will look at all aspects of the process including making a transition from category strategy to RFP strategy, developing category criteria and weighting, and building basic supplier negotiation techniques.  Participants will use case studies to review and learn concepts.
