Our Optimized Procurement Institute teaches you how to become a full stack buyer. We believe that there is a set of soft and hard skills necessary for every Procurement professional, but the problem is that most of these skills are not taught at universities or business schools. And most organisations don’t have the time and resources to build and deliver a complete procurement training to employees that will save millions to the organisation. This is the reason why we decided to put together 10 essential modules split into 2 main categories: Buyer Fundamentals and Procurement Expertise:
