We all have to spend money with third parties in our businesses but the art is to make sure that this money is helping you work towards your business goals and not costing more than it needs to.

This introduction to Procurement focusses on practical steps on how to get started and improve your supply chain.

It’s in plain English and easy to follow, so you can get your supply chain powering your business goals.

We’ll look at how you distinguish between the ‘core’ products that are important to your business and the ‘non-core’ products that you need but don’t directly impact your customers. Then, we’ll look at different approaches for these products, including quick wins to get you on the right track.
