From Back Room to Board Room; Procurement As a Strategic Partner

In many companies, procurement has an image problem. It’s often seen as a “clerical” function relegated to processing POs after the contract has been negotiated and signed. This ISM procurement course will help you to overcome this challenge and position procurement as a strategic partner within your organization. As companies seek additional sources of value, procurement has an opportunity to position itself as a strategic enabler of success. In this course, you’ll learn how to raise procurement’s profile by understanding shared goals, securing leadership buy-in and communicating successes. The course provides access for 60 days from the date of the purchase.
