Streamlining Your Procurement Process

June 16

Learn how to review and improve your supply management processes and turn your procurement area into a profit center.

Supply management is a critical component of an organization’s supply chain management success. New ideas, software, and concepts evolve constantly, and supply management cannot afford to miss these opportunities. Their role is too strategic. The supply area involves many different processes that have significant impact on their organization’s sustaining core competencies and critical success factors, selecting suppliers, developing internal and external relationships, meeting cost reduction goals, etc. Having the most effective and efficient supply processes requires a periodic detailed review of activities and tasks, the identification of non-value added steps, the recognition of new technologies and ideas, and the implementation of new ways to do old things. This topic promises to motivate you to carve out the time to explore how you can do things better and smarter using new methods and technology. Through streamlining, supply personnel can continue to accomplish more using fewer resources.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to define the importance of periodic checkups of the various processes critical to successful supply management.
  • You will be able to describe how reviewing and improving supply management processes enables the procurement area to be a profit center.
  • You will be able to discuss new tools and methods to enhance existing processes.
  • You will be able to explain how to diagram out a process and apply lean principles to removing wasteful practices.
