Effective Purchasing Skills Seminar
This Purchasing Seminar will teach your purchasing staff the skills they need to be able to source and buy the supplies and materials you need it at the best price and quality that they can get.
It will introduce them to the analyze the product issues surrounding quality, price, lead times, volumes, and supplier performance.
Instead of haggling solely on price, your staff will learn to look deeper into the development of supplier relations that can lead to significant price reductions through the development of a leaner and more efficient supply chain.
In the many years I spent as a purchaser, I have across many instances where the cheapest is not necessarily the best purchase. Cheap inputs items usually mean lower quality output products that your clients will notice. If you do this enough times, your client might look elsewhere for higher quality products even if it will cost them a little more.
Do your people have the skills they need to really compare prices and quality? What are your Key Performance Indices for your suppliers?
This purchasing seminar will take them through the analysis, concepts and strategies that lead to a better long-term relationship with the best suppliers.
