    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.

    Organizations are currently using just 10% of the data available to them. The rest of this digital brainpower presents an untapped opportunity for organizations who embrace AI-enabled solutions. In this presentation, Julien Nadaud will discuss how artificial intelligence introduces new complexities and possibilities and offer insights for making Procurement into a trusted innovator.
