In today’s procurement, where the volume of suppliers is large, decision-makers cannot rely on
intuition to make strategic decisions. Also, as the global marketplace has evolved, the
procurement function has moved from being a purely operational purchase order fulfillment
department to a more strategic role. The current nature of global business and its increasingly
complex supply chain networks demand advanced tools to meet the complexity and
accelerating change in procurement.
Procurement Management is for buyers, and Contract Management is for sellers. In this two-day workshop, you’ll learn about both buyer’s and seller’s perspectives on procurement.
As part of the workshop, you will deepen your knowledge, develop your skills, and gain insight
into ethics and risk in procurement.
The two-day practical workshop will help delegates improve their skills on the subject, resulting

to update your knowledge of Procurement/Contract Management.
