Introduction to Procurement - Two days
3 Places Left Booking ends: 26 Nov 2018

A two-day overview of the essentials of procurement from end-to-end, exploring the various ways each process can add value.

Upon completion of this course, delegates will be equipped with:

  • An understanding of the procurement process from end-to-end, with a particular focus on how value is added with each component. Within this, delegates will also understand how the role of procurement is far more intensive than straightforward transactional purchasing.
  • A look at appropriate demeanour and approach when going out to tender and dealing with suppliers, and how to mitigate potential risks posed by supplier behaviour.
  • The ability to identify and separate the tools used to engage the market, such as Requests for Information and/or Proposals, and ultimately the usage of those systems.
  • An understanding of how expertise in the procurement field is ultimately essential, particularly around how that expertise is applied.
  • The ability to demonstrate and define value by implementing a variety of evaluation tools and theories.


    This course is perfect for those new to the procurement profession and process, and wanting to gain a broad overview of the various components involved. This is classically the best place to start if you have not undertaken any CIPS training or qualifications of any type before, and need to enhance your knowledge of the field quickly. It is also beneficial if you are not necessarily working in procurement, but would to develop an understanding of what it involves.

    Since this course serves as a broad introduction, the various topics and theories introduced across the two days are further expanded on in our other more specialised courses.


    Please note: All courses come with complimentary morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
