The Purchasing and Supply Chain Management program will show you the integrated approach to planning, acquisition, flow, and distribution, from raw materials to finished products. Topics such as developing a corporate culture, working successfully with teams, developing and implementing successful people management strategies, and workflow and performance management will be explored in this program. You'll also learn what makes a successful entrepreneur, and you'll develop an understanding of the basics of marketing management and the strategies involved in developing a marketing plan. The art of negotiation is covered in great detail, giving you a foundation for negotiating with great awareness and effectiveness.
This program provides an excellent foundation for a CPM (Certified Purchasing Manager) certification exam, but please note that this is not a CPM review program.
Upon registering, you're given an initial six months to complete the program. Should you need more time, you may request a six-month extension at no additional charge. Pricing varies for extensions beyond six months.
