Training Course Overview

Procurement is so important to organisations and it has been severely impacted by COVID-19 putting procurement into the forefront in organisations. We have to grasp the opportunity, making the most of it ensuring there is a sustainable legacy from it. We know the importance of procurement and supply chain, but it is not always recognised throughout the rest of the organisation.

The success of organisation not only depends on what we do, but also how we manage our suppliers and contractors.  Excellent Purchasing Management is a prerequisite in this dynamic environment. In the long term, the pandemic has illustrated the importance of good procurement and commercial teams. In these changing times we need to rigorous with how we operate with better supplier relations including a new era of collaboration in procurement. The coronavirus outbreak will fundamentally change the way we do business in procurement management.  A more cooperative environment for procurement and supply chain professionals may well be one of the long-term key impacts of COVID-19.

This COPEX training course addresses these issues in order to continuously improve our procurement operations. In the face of a major global crisis such as the spread of coronavirus, now is the time to step rethink how to protect supply chains as much as possible from the adverse impacts.
