Another 3 Reasons Why We’re the Right Partner for Your Procurement Trainings?

1. Tailored for Client’s Needs! 
We review the client’s needs through a Pre-Course Questionnaire (PCQ) to identify core challenges, issues & problems and incorporate answers to those problems during the course. 

2. Measure Training Effectiveness! 
We shall conduct a Pre & Post Assessment, to measure effectiveness of the program & improvement in the level of knowledge of each participant. 

“… To be honest, many of our employees … were active [ISM] members, and didn’t want to go through “another” training course.  By the end of the week-long training, however, they gave the program [Strategic Procurement Management] great praise. Pre and post-training test scores also increased by nearly 40%, representing a significant increase in knowledge”. 

Assistant Vice President & Director of Strategic Sourcing, Fortune 100 Insurance Provider

“I am pleased to report that the training program [Strategic Procurement Management] exceeded expectations. The pre and post examinations reflected a 42% mean increase in proficiency.  The procurement team’s satisfaction level among internal clients has increased by 10%+.  Overall, [this] training program proved to be a very shrewd investment of time and resources.”

Director of Corporate Procurement,
Top Five Global Technology Company

3. Learning By Doing!
Work Based Tasks are given to participants at the end of the program, outlining specific principle(s) they need to apply in their day to day job based on the outcomes of the program. 

“The training content and the many case study examples made the instruction come alive. The participant surveys indicated a high level of knowledge and best practice was received from the two presentations. It was especially-beneficial for my management team to have each participant make a formal presentation the day following their training session to outline techniques they intend to incorporate into the region’s procurement cost-reduction strategy. Those presentations identified between $5 Million and $7 Million USD in saving opportunities. Thanks again for [an] excellent training.
