This training workshop will demonstrate how procurement should be organized depends substantially on how procurement behaves or is perceived. Is it there to “serve the factory” and carry out a range of clerical and transactional tasks? Or is it there fundamentally with a commercial orientation, to reduce business costs through negotiating discounts and inviting tenders? Is it there as a co-ordinator of purchasing across the enterprise, driving synergies and managing those suppliers who can serve multiple divisions? Is procurement in place to deliver cross-functional purchasing through internal or external co-ordination, e.g. through early supplier involvement? The development of Procurement and supply management from a transactional function through to having a value chain orientation is what this workshop is about.
