2016 Strategic Procurement Institute II

August 28 - August 31, 2016
Denver, CO


Course Information

There are a number of topics that could be discussed under the banner Strategic Procurement. In the Strategic Procurement Institute I we discuss the broad theme of increasing our collective skills in spend management as we believe this is the core body of knowledge in which we should strive for excellence. In connection with this theme there are four (4) pillars of spend management that are presented and discussed from a theory and case study standpoint. Those four (4) pillars include opportunity assessment, business case development, cost management execution and supplier relationship management. 

The primary objective of Strategic Procurement Institute #2 is to dig deeper into each of these pillars to go from theory to practice. The Institute will focus on the practical application of each pillar using live data sets. In-class time will be concentrated on practical “how-to” road maps combined with extensive class discussion with your colleagues and facilitated in a manner to increase the value of what you can take back to your institution for immediate use.

Expected Outcomes

  • Practical “hands-on” approaches to the four (4) pillars of spend management including opportunity assessment, business case development, cost management execution and supplier relationship management;
