BENEFITS OF THE PROGRAM
Why this program?
The Purchasing Manager is a key player in the Executive Team and a trusted actor in the Supply Chain. No business player can ignore the Supply Chain to which his organization belongs. Neither can he overlook the challenges facing his operations and the value of a close collaboration with his suppliers and contracted partners.
The Purchasing Manager makes sure that the quality of exchange and cooperation with suppliers provides a key of competitiveness to his own organization. Relationships with suppliers aim at a win-win result, which requires a constant search for common value creation.
Sourcing, purchasing and procurement require global access and use of sophisticated information and communication systems. Today, purchasing performances can be greatly impacted by the use of internet.
The Purchasing Manager must be able to demonstrate a capability to marry strategic and tactical decisions, in a turbulent world of uncertainty. Because of the complexity of his job, he needs to acquire and master technical, managerial and behavioral competences with the required depth and -more important?- width.
For such purposes, and to respond to this demanding context, the program responds to the business needs of providing a global, up-to-date expertise in the strategic management of purchasing in order to fully integrate and support the enterprise strategy.
