Are you ready to take your procurement operation to the next level?  If so, this is the class for you, and the only one of its kind, specifically for the indirect procurement industry. It is based on the guidelines, best practices and metrics found in the COPC Indirect Procurement Standard, a performance management system developed for the unique needs of procurement operations.

This four-day, in-depth class will provide you with the knowledge and approaches to strategically manage your indirect spend. You will leave this class equipped to implement what you learn immediately in your operation, helping you to optimize spend, improve supplier performance, and increase internal stakeholder satisfaction.
