The first day focuses on the strategic role of procurement in the organisation and the link between procurement performance and competitive advantage.
The second day concentrates on providing you with key tools for managing strategic supply networks and improving performance.
Finally, the third day covers issues of innovation and leadership, which will allow you to face current and future challenges.
By the end of the programme you will have a better understanding of how to deliver value through procurement and increased confidence in managing your team.
