Udemy – Achieving World-Class Purchasing [100% off] Worth $199!
Purchasing has evolved from a transactional-based activity to the present-day value-added function. Buyers who view carefully selected suppliers as partners will develop long-term relationships based on trust that focus on total cost of ownership vs. price and early supplier involvement in new and improved product development. This leads to the use of cross-functional teams and more best-in-class methods, tools, procedures, and analysis of price-cost-quality relationships described in the course. Also, the ability of purchasing to dramatically impact and increase return on investment and to reduce costs is demonstrated throughout this course.
