Purchasing has, according to the trends, become more strategically important for companies. The importance of suppliers and purchasing/sourcing increased significantly during the 1990’s and was acknowledged by executive managers by the end of the decade (Trent, et al., 1998).

We came up with this course to address the “research-based” needs of logistics and other managers for required sourcing skills. This comprehensive training workshop will ensure that participants will identify the right choice for hiring supplier/service provider in the most practical and cost effective scheme.
