Procurement Supply Chain Management Training

Course Introduction

Supply chain management (SCM) is “the systemic, strategic coordination of the traditional business functions and the tactics across these business functions within a particular company and across businesses within the supply chain, for the purposes of improving the long term performance of the individual companies and the supply chain as a whole.” It has also been defined as the “design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand and measuring performance globally. Our Procurement Supply Chain Management Training Course assists delegates in understanding these concepts and more technical matters and thus can be considered as Procurement training for beginners and Advanced levels .

The Challenge 

Managers are often faced with a number of highly technical and complex decisions and procedures in the supply chain area. Corporate governance, strict adherence to polices and high levels of ethics are required for effective supply chain management.  A Detailed knowledge of Government Procurement Regulations and related technicalities is also required (i.e. Public Procurement Training Courses) Thus, there is a demand for a broad range of  procurement training for beginners to an advanced level.
