Course Description

What is the link between procurement and the project life cycle? What is the role of the buyer in the procurement management process? Aligning procurement strategy to project deliverables ensures that the project meets its objectives. Effective purchasing is key to project success and as procurement often represents a considerable portion of project spend, it is important that the process is well managed to ensure that value for money is realised and the project is delivered on time.


In all of these the buyer has an important role to play. Being an effective buyer not only means possessing the right qualities but also knowing the tools to deploy to get the most competitive deal from the market place, to cut off wastages and inefficiency along the supply chain and to effectively negotiate with and manage your suppliers  to get the best from them. 


This course exposes participants to a comprehensive treatment of the elements of the procurement process.  It demonstrates through case studies, exercises, group discussions and practical examples how they can use a combination of market intelligence, strategic planning, procurement toolkits and personal effectiveness to become effective procurement officers and buyers, and in return create value for the business.
