If feel very sad about the amount of negative press recently about the outcome of bad purchasing. I just wish that many organisations would consider their training needs for purchasing before the problems occur and not after when costs, share prices, public perception and customers have been negatively impacted.
Gardeners understand that seeds need time in the greenhouse, lawns need mowing and weeds need to be pulled. Yet many business managers often forget to feed, weed and/or prune their suppliers. Why - because they’re only applying buying processes to their expenditure and not applying more rigour by adopting purchasing or procurement tools and techniques.
As the Purchasing Coach I offer a range of services dependant on the size of your spend and where you are on the Buying/Purchasing/Procurement continuum. These services include:
• Workshops and keynote speeches for managers (ok perhaps more accurately for manger who purchase and yet have not had any formal purchasing training)
• Masterclasses for purchasing managers working on their own
• Business Skills development for Procurement teams
To find out more about who I am, what I do and the positive impact I can have on purchasing in your organisation do visit www.thepurchasingcoach.co.uk or call me on +44 (0)7770 538159 or email [email protected].
I look forward to hearing from you.
