Strategic Procurement Training

At INVERTO, we divide the strategic procurement process into six process steps and two main phases: Plan-to-Strategy (P2S) and Source-to-Contract (S2C). Our training modules are systemized along these phases and process steps and can be combined to with a comprehensive training curriculum.

The P2S phase deals with topics around the analysis of the procurement status quo, the potential determination, and the definition of sourcing strategies. The S2C phase covers topics under strategy implementation, contract management and contract implementation. In our modules Fundamentals of procurement, the Strategic Sourcing Process in general, Procurement 4.0 and Category strategy & management we train cross-sectional topics. In these modules the participants gain the necessary competences to successfully understand and apply the content conveyed in the P2S and S2C modules.

    What our clients say about us

    „Together with INVERTO, we have achieved a result that we did not think possible at the beginning of the project. The overall package of tender preparation, service provider workshops and rounds of negotiations at top management level has raised our hosting landscape to a new level of price performance. I thoroughly recommend working with INVERTO.“

    Dr. Jürgen Wickl, Managing Director of Styria Media IT

    „By preparing a functional specification, we managed to advertise requirements in a tailored way. INVERTO’s orientation towards precise customer requirements and benchmarks as well as professional negotiations has contributed significantly to the success of this project. The close involvement of employees in this structured tender process is an additional bonus, and something which will benefit us in years to come.“

    Siniša Mitrović, mag.oec., Managing director, Styria Tiskara Zagreb

    „Due to the flexibility of the team, we managed to receive additional offers from suppliers and hence increase competition between existing suppliers. Through centralization of our former pick-up locations in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina we managed to reduce the operational work for our employees. Furthermore, this centralization led to a huge additional revenue from our waste paper business. The project work with INVERTO was very professional and made this great result possible.“
