What if you could learn skills that would allow you to double your cost savings, slash negotiation cycle time, almost eliminate supplier excursions (because the focus shifts from fire fighting to prevention), and have 4 hours a day completely free on your calendar to focus on more strategic initiatives at your pace? What is it worth for you to gain the confidence, the skills, and the capabilities to outcompete every person in your Industry, and have the capability to double your revenue in just a few years? The architects of these powerful materials did just that with their careers, and now they are giving YOU these Insider Power Secrets of the Masters.
Now if you insist on doing what you’ve always been doing, stop for a moment and ask yourself where that has gotten you so far. Are you at the position level you want or deserve? Have you mastered procurement to the point that negotiations are exciting and rewarding? Do your peers seek you out and ask you how you keep getting incredible results? Have you reached a level of prestige in your company that you feel good about? Is purchasing the lucrative career for you that it can and should be? Are you admired by your friends and family as being highly successful?
Here’s what you are likely looking forward to in your career in procurement if you keep doing what you always have been doing: You will be part of the 95% in procurement who start and stay in the lower ranks and live mostly in frustration because they can’t stop spinning their wheels.
Lack of sufficient preparation for high stakes negotiations. Rogue customers that do what they want and get away with it by calling procurement a “road block”. Tough contracts and slow legal departments. Suppliers that can’t perform right to save their life. Thankless managers who burden you with administrative responsibilities and wonder why you don’t get strategic results. Internal Auditors that have to find something to report. 3% raises year after year. Hearing everyone talk about supply chain management but having no clue what to do about it. 80% or more of every day spent on unplanned activities (“fire fighting”) that don’t count as accomplishments on your status report or your performance review. No budget for training and lack of internal training resources. Less headcount but more expectations: small and diverse businesses, green business, and many flavor of the month programs that management dreams up or agrees to.
Have you experienced everything above? Is this you? Is this what you signed up for in Supply Chain? Is this how you want to spend your career?
Attendance is a must for Directors, VPs, MDs, General Managers, Team Leads, Heads and Senior Managers of the following departments/divisions but not limited to:
Also attend if you are:
End user and engineering teams – because the program will focus on how to take cost out of the equation (in the product or service design itself) before the team ever go out to bid – which requires end user and engineering involvement. The program will examine the roles/responsibilities on the negotiation on team which they will be a part of. It will cover how to engage with these teams early to get better purchasing results, and finally walk the participant through how to redefine what is being purchased in terms of desired performance results which typically, only the end users can illustrate. End users are used to telling the organization what goods and services they want to buy and then often complain about the performance results.
We're VERY picky about who we accept into the program and we've got a strict (but reasonable) set of criteria that needs to be met in order for admission.
These materials were researched and designed to benefit the industry supply chain veteran – one who is familiar with the technical terms, has ideally had at least four– seven years progressively increasing supply chain related experience.
To uphold the value and industry recognition of this certification, you must commit to Purchasing & Supply Chain Management excellence ...otherwise there's no point in getting Certification.
That's it! If you meet these criteria, then we'd be delighted to have you join us, as it is our goal that you obtain the maximum benefit from the game changing program.
