A 2-day intensive SRM course aimed at purchasing professionals and potentially some key stakeholders. This open course is designed to help practitioners manage important suppliers and develop specific interventions to achieve business goals. Based around the Positive Purchasing ‘Orchestra of SRM®‘ and 5A™ SCR (Strategic Collaborative Relationship) process, our SRM training is perfect for any practitioner who is involved in managing or interfacing with suppliers.

This course will help you secure greater value, performance, effectiveness, innovation and security of supply as well as reduced supply chain risk. It will enable you to identify those suppliers who are important and why, and equip those who attend with the tools and approaches to determine and effect the right interventions with the right suppliers.

The course integrates fully with Category Management, providing the perfect ‘next step’ training for purchasing practitioners. Experienced trainers bring the training to life using a combination of inspirational tuition, facilitated debate, group work and case studies.
