Superb supplier relationships and good buys
Sourcing and procurement activities have a significant impact on the competitiveness of an organization - despite the fact that they are often classified as support functions. Up to 70-80% of the total cost of the organization consists of various acquisitions, so their importance should not be underestimated in any way.
In the area of sourcing, there is a huge potential for continuous improvement in most organizations. However, this requires the organization to realize and accept the importance of sourcing – to define its sourcing strategy and the most appropriate implementation.
Aalto PRO's fully English-language international sourcing management training programme is focused on well-known industry best practices and newest ideas. The goal is to help participants develop better profitability, improved performance and build new, supplier relationships based culture in their organizations.
