Strategic sourcing is one of the most important aspects of supply management as internal stakeholders look for value added solutions for products and services. Options continue to expand globally and offer features that can meet or exceed current suppliers. Supply management professionals are tasked with obtaining the best quality, performance, and service at the right price, with the lowest risk in order to achieve organizational objectives as identified through category management principles. This certificate program will provide knowledge for end-to-end sourcing practices including specification development, value analysis, supplier market research, negotiation, and purchasing activities. The course provides access for 60 days from the date of the purchase.
