February 25, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 25, 2020--

The “Advanced Certificate in Strategic Procurement (ACSP) 20” training has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Delivering Success Through Effective Procurement And Supply Chain Management

Effective Procurement is, and always has been, fundamental to the success of an organisation. On average, over fifty percent of an organisation’s total revenue is passed down the Supply Chain. In many sectors however, this can be significantly more, for example in the Public Sector, this can exceed eighty percent. It is imperative that this expenditure is managed and controlled effectively. Poor Procurement leads to, increased cost, poor quality, delays, loss of control and lack of cost visibility. Proactive, professional Procurement will become a value added function within the organisation. Over time, organisations have realised the value that can be delivered through effective Procurement. At the same time, the value of appropriately qualified Procurement Professionals has also increased.

Procurement is now seen as a job’ rather than a role’. The shift from transactional, operational buying to Strategic Procurement has been quicker in some Industries than others. Organisations that have not yet made the change are being left behind. Commodity, or category, based Procurement provides the correct structure to help deliver a truly World Class Procurement function. ACSP provides the understanding, framework, tools, and principles that allow organisations to build, embed and develop real Strategic Procurement. On completion of this five day training course you will receive your certificate which has been fully certified by the International Federation of Purchasing and Supply Management (IFPSM) PAS Standard.
