This training is crafted to enable employees who spearhead procurement management in their organisations to possess in- depth knowledge of public procurement. In addition, it will also equip them with the necessary skills and tools required to make the process beneficial to their organisations.
The cost of purchasing and doing business is on a steady rise. Businesses have started to regard procurement management as their top priority since it takes up a large share of their overall spend. Considering most organizations still hold on to their manual procurement practices, a complete revamp of their procurement functions is crucial to keep pace with business demands.
In order to get these fundamentals right, organizations need to implement an effective procure-to-pay process and embrace the right technology solutions. However, simply revamping the process and implementing a top technology product won’t make the procurement function best-in-class. So, what does it take?
The answer might differ from one organization to another, but there are some procurement best practices that several leading companies have adopted over time.

The ‘real cost’ of holding inventory is much higher than the cost of ordering items
The rule of thumb for holding costs is between 20 and 30 percent
It is not just consumable products that go bad over a period of time –everything from consumer electronics to clothing is subject to risks
The major reason for out-of-balance inventories is poor planning and forecasting
