Course Description

Supply Management is the process of managing flows of goods, services, knowledge and resulting finances into the organization. The goal of this course is to explore the procurement process and how it fits into Supply Management.

The procurement process extends well beyond the boundaries of the procurement department. For instance, senior management may be heavily involved in selecting supply partners. Similarly, design departments will be heavily involved in choosing key technologies, which will have significant implications in selecting suppliers. However, in most organizations, the procurement department plays an integral role in all major procurement activities, in either a lead or supporting role.

You will be introduced to the tactical aspects of procurement. This course will provide information and techniques to allow junior to intermediate procurement staff to work more effectively. For those not currently working in a procurement role, the course will help you prepare for one, or allow you to work more effectively with procurement staff.
