About the Course

The purpose of this course is to show buyers how they can obtain the right goods and services and influence price. By getting involved early in the supply process, right when the purchase is being identified, buyers can reduce costs and improve quality.

This course explores opportunities to add value when identifying requirements, appropriate uses for different types of specifications, and the importance of involving purchasing when identifying requirements. About 70%–80% of total cost is influenced when requirements are identified. That makes an accurate description of the requirement critical, as is having purchasing involved early in the supply process, where there are many opportunities to add value by reducing costs and improving quality.
