Follow/Shadow the Expert
Imagine now if you could shadow an expert, look how he/she is applying ...
That is how our Scenario Based E-Learning Courses have been designed, so that you observe and you apply.
Simulations represent Real Life Problems faced by Procurement Executives, where you are given the opportunity to apply the concepts learned. You are put in a scenario where you need to make decisions & given immediate feedback on those decisions.
Make the wrong decision and feedback/guidance is given hinting you at the correct decision until you make the right decision and move forward in the simulation.
In-course Exercises & Quizes help remember what you learn through engagement & participation during the e-learning.
As you move through each e-course you will answer questions - when you answer correctly you re-enforce what you just learned. But even when you answer wrongly you will be shown explanations as to why you answer was wrong and guided to the right answer. This reinforces learning even more, as we learn more from our mistakes than from our successes.
The Advanced Procurement Skills for Managers training course is NOT another hack or tactic. Yes, we will give you access to many tactics, but the goal of each program is more than that - You will get a clear road-map of WHAT to do & HOW to do it.
If what you have tried in the past hasn’t worked, and you’re ready for something different, then this is probably for you. But while this may be ideal for many, it certainly is NOT for everyone…
WHO Should Enroll the Advanced Procurement Skills Training?
As this is an advanced program, you need to have at least 5 years experience in procurement or in a managerial/leadership position or ideally both. While those that don't have this experience may join, they will not benefit as much. Instead consider starting with Fundamental Procurement Skills Online Training Here.
Do you have about 60 minutes a week set aside to actually learn? And Use the Simulations in the Work-Place?
If not, then you likely won’t find success with this, or any other program.

All fully aligned with each other. Here's what our client says about simulations and scenario-based e-learning ...
[online simulations] were helpful because they gave a few examples so I could apply the situations to our world easily and gave great tips along the way on how to use the tools. Applying a real situation to the simulation examples was great in helping me learn to apply the information correctly and with the greatest impact ... The examples were great as well.
Karen Lawton - Buyer - Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities
Well Worth the Value Investment. Before the simulations, I am 90% confident that I have fully grasped the lessons and principles. Then comes the humbling simulations :), ... I often found myself going back to review and get better understanding. It's one thing to know the principles, application is a different challenge as scenarios change and can be complex. But in the end, I am confident that I am better placed to deliver and exceed expectations at work and personal engagements. Practice and Utilization of skills will aid continuous improvement for excellence.
