In many companies, procurement is mistakenly perceived as a back-room function relegated to processing POs and enforcing terms of contracts that have been negotiated and signed by other operational departments. Business skills are vital to gaining a seat at the table with critical stakeholders and senior management. Being able to clearly define the purpose and objectives of supply management as it aligns to the overall company is vital. This certificate program will provide knowledge and skills on communicating strategic value, engaging stakeholders, project management and considerations implementing automated business processes to help supply management professionals assume the role of strategic enabler for driving success.
