Training and Development – Professional Procurement Training
Professional Staff Development With the INVERTO Training Center
Changing conditions in procurement mean that buyers are faced with tough challenges. Increasing globalization, the increasing volatility of procurement markets and ever more complex pricing conditions are just some examples of changing external factors.
Even within companies, the requirements of well-established procurement are growing. Developing procurement from an administrative unit to a core function in the supply chain is the main focus.
More efficient procurement can add considerable value to your company. Given the economic situation and considering the skills shortage, educating employees in procurement and recruiting new ones are priorities.
Individual training for long-term effects and strong knowledge transfer
The INVERTO Training Centre (ITC) offers professional procurement seminars and training modules, which each focus on employee development and contribute to the professionalisation of procurement and supply chain management.
We can advise you on combining our training modules
We offer a comprehensive range of modules to train staff in procurement. Through the use of an assessment tool, we identify the current training needs of your company and use this knowledge to create optimum training modules to develop your employees. Each training session is based on conceptual foundations and case studies from INVERTO’s many years of practical consulting experience. The use of experienced and practical coaches guarantees you maximum success in training your employees.
Choose between classic classroom sessions, on-the-job training, project-related coaching or train-the-trainer sessions to further professionalise your procurement according to your requirements and train your procurement staff.
We also support your employees on the job
When training is carried out on the job, individual training units are carried out as part of a predefined assignment or as a specific real-life project, and the knowledge gained can then be directly applied in your employees’ working environment. On-the-job training also allows us to train your buyers along the entire strategic procurement process. Alongside considerable knowledge transfer, you will also achieve specific, applicable results in terms of staff training.
