    Many supply chain professionals learn the basics of contracting on the job. However, to advance in your profession, you’ll need to develop more sophisticated contracting skills. This supply chain management course will provide you with advanced contracting know-how to progress in your career and take on new challenges. In this “beyond the basics” contracting course, you’ll build upon your existing contract knowledge and take it a step further by focusing on how to construct effective customized agreements. For hands-on practice, you’ll review numerous contract clauses and their uses in various situations, including services, software, construction and e-commerce. This course will also address contracts from a global perspective to prepare you with global contracting skills, an in-demand skill set. To ensure this course is applicable to your specific role, you're invited to have copies of your contracts for reference during the program.

    Join Zycus Inc (zycus.com) and ISM in this virtual event to gain practical insights & pragmatic approaches from senior procurement leaders, practitioners, and thought leaders on how you can set the procurement priorities for the next year to achieve breakthrough performance.

    As procurement leadership undertakes the planning process for 2023, CPOs and the procurement teams are dabbling with multiple competing priorities. From Cognitive Procurement solutions enabling better decision-making, and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) automating mundane, repetitive tasks, to the emerging next-gen technologies that drive major changes in how organizations operate and procure.

    This demands a radical shift in outlook to design a perfect Procurement agenda to reinforce itself as a center of gravity for value creation and strategic leadership from being a mere enabling function.

    While Procurement functions need to build a strong relationship with Tier 1 suppliers and develop capabilities aligned to Environmental, Social, and Corporate governance (ESG) goals, Enterprises need to develop core capabilities (data quality, data governance, in-house skills & competency, and change management) to derive maximum value from the implementation of next-generation procurement technologies.
