Course Description 

This interactive, day long course integrates the realities and opportunities of managing indirect procurement within multi-echelon supply chains. A set of pricing models is presented that accentuates differences in human based services versus information based services verses services including some material content. A deeper understanding of indirect demand drivers is developed from analyzing multi-echelon environments downstream. New opportunities to consolidate indirect supply volumes arise from the consideration of common, multi-echelon requirements among trading partners. Upon completing this course, procurement professionals will be better equipped to negotiate their indirect spend within a total supply chain context.

Seminar Goals

Participants work exercises that expand their view of the boundaries around indirect procurement. Separate pricing models for human based services, information based services, and services with material content reveal key pricing leverage points. Service demand is modified by the dynamics of end-to-end throughput and by the exercise of dynamic pricing. The volume of service supply is consolidated through supply rationalization and expanded through opportunities to work procurement categories across echelons. Participants learn that indirect procurement is not just a transaction to be made in isolation from the rest of the supply chain
