Advanced Purchasing Management

Purchasing, as a vital element of the company, must be able to function at top efficiency at all times. To do so, there must be flexibility and proper organization. Each purchasing man- ager must be able to review the purchasing function objectively and determine whether its current structure and system of operation fills the needs of the company as well as the needs of purchasing. In such an analysis, such matters as purchasing policies, job descriptions, operational procedures, and departmental structure must be considered with care.


  • Manage the big picture effectively by inter-departmental coordination.
  • Examine purchasing organizational concepts, personnel training and educational factors, and purchasing job descriptions.
  • Prepare plans, set goals and objectives for contribution to the bottom line and cost effectiveness.
  • Decide what sourcing strategies and expectations can be used to enhance supplier quality and productivity and optimize the supply base.
  • Broaden your perspective about what factors in the business environment affect purchasing decisions and how purchasing should monitor, appraise, and evaluate these factors through performance reports.
  • Use electronic commerce, internet-based purchasing, and purchasing/procurement cards for operational management and decision support to improve productivity and enhance decision making.
  • Maintain cooperative relationships with suppliers in order to realize maximum cost efficiencies and continuity of service.
  • Exchange insights and information about the problems you face everyday with other professionals, developing a network of executives with whom you can share information both during the seminar and beyond.
  • Ensure that communication is clear and concise internally, both between you and your staff-and externally with vendors, suppliers, and contractors.
  • Understand the “ins and outs” of strategic sourcing, early supplier involvement, supplier empowerment, outsourcing, and value-added supply management.
