This workshop will take you into the realms of strategic procurement. You will be equipped to deal with more complex and business-critical procurement projects and learn about tools and approaches that will allow you to get the best out of your suppliers. Through this course, you will be asked to develop your own approach to strategic procurement so that you can purchase in a more professional and effective manner. This workshop takes you through the stages of strategic procurement – from initial discussions with stakeholders all the way through to the research, selection and management of suppliers.

You will look at when a strategic approach is right for the organisation and learn some different ways of handling strategic procurement projects. The strategic approach often involves longer-term partnerships and you will look at how to achieve value for everyone involved in the deal.

Is it right for me?
This workshop is designed to help people who are managing larger or more strategic procurement projects. If you are new to strategic procurement, it will give you an understanding of what it involves and some tools to get started in a professional and effective way.

If you already undertake strategic procurement projects, the course is a useful refresher and you will pick up some additional ideas and tools to extend what you already do.

What will I learn?
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Explain what strategic procurement is and why it is important to businesses in all industry sectors
- Manage stakeholder engagement and get strategic procurement projects started in a professional and successful manner
- Be able to research the market and collate the data that is most critical to adding value from your procurement activity
