Many organizations are becoming aware that the Procurement function is no longer just an operational cost center but one of strategic importance to their supply chain. According to ISM – The Institute for Supply Management, every 1% that you reduce costs equates to 5% in additional sales. Similarly, inefficiencies along the procurement process can cascade down the supply chain and adversely impact the bottom line.
As prices of commodities become more volatile, it is crucial for the Procurement professional to proactively assess and review how to plan and implement value-added procurement strategies, perform successful win-win negotiations without leaving money on the table, and develop effective and sustainable relationships with key suppliers.
Salvo Global’s comprehensive Masterclass on “Value-Added Procurement, Negotiations & Supplier Relationship Management” explores the latest methodologies and practices such that your organization can move from simply a reactive, tactical (cost center) department to a value-add, strategic (profit center) function.
