This course is aimed at those who buy and negotiate without being a full-time buyer for that matter. A large part of a company’s purchase and negotiation is made by people who actually have other main tasks. However, if these “part time purchasers” do not have sufficient knowledge, the result may be that the purchases are carried out without adequate quality and cost control. This is where the course Business Purchasing comes into the picture and gives you the basics of a purchasing process based on current and exciting case studies.
