Training course overview

Procurement is so important to organisations and it has been severly impacted by COVID-19 puting procurement into the forefronts of conversations in organisations. We have to grasp the opportunity, making the most of it ensuring there is a legacy from it. We know the importance of procurement and supply chain, but it’s not always recognised throughout organisations.

The success of organisation not only depends on what you do, it will also depend on what is done for you by your suppliers and contractors. No organisation can be successful without good Purchasing Management. In the long term, the pandemic has provided us an opportunity to recognise the importance of procurement and commercial teams. In these changing times we have to rethink how we operate with better supplier relations incorporating a new era of collaboration in procurement. The coronavirus outbreak will fundamentally change the way we do business in procurement management.  A more cooperative climate for procurement and supply chain professionals may well be one of the long-term key impact of Covid-19.

This Coventry Academy online training course addresses these issues in order to not only survive but thrive. In the face of a major global crisis such as the spread of coronavirus, now is the time to step forward and be proactive in protecting supply chains as much as possible from the impact.
