"The course made me understand the importance of gaining as much knowledge as possible about what I am buyng in terms of product, supplier, supply chain to help ensure we are buying effectively and dealing with the right suppliers for our business." - Intellegent Purchasing Delegate.
The foundation of Mintec's training program is Intelligent Purchasing. Our core objective is to furnish purchasing professionals with a set of advanced skills to enable the effective procurement of goods and services.
When you are poring over your purchase requirements have you ever asked yourself the following questions?
What would be the most effective strategy for meeting our business needs?
How can we use data and marketing information to gain insight into price movements?
What price should we pay for a complex material or a finished product and why?
How much should we buy, when should we buy it and what is the risk?
Which supplier has the most appropriate cost drivers to meet our needs?
If all of these are achieved what will be the outcome for our business?
