Procurement Consulting & Advisory Services

Procurement Consulting Services & Advisory from the Center Where Every Year Over Half a Million* Procurement Executives Look for Procurement Strategies & Tactics!

In addition to offering procurement trainings (classroom and online), Purchasing & Procurement Center delivers special consulting projects that help organisations to measure their procurement process and people vis-à-vis world class & best practices.

We actively conduct less than 5 projects at any one time since all our consulting projects are directly handled by highly experienced consultants who actually are hands on. We and our consultants do not sub-contract any part of the work.

For that reason we are not able to take on every request for consulting. If we find that we can excel in the deliverables then we pursue the project. If not we’ll tell you upfront.

Our Typical Projects are quick to implement and focus on the outcome/results of what you want to achieve, which is actually one of the best practices in procurement - hiring suppliers based on results you want to achieve.

Our Procurement Consulting Services Include:

3600 (Degrees) Supply Management Review
