Module Overview

Procurement is the process of acquiring goods and services by organizations.  Traditionally, procurement has not been thought of in a strategic sense.  As the percentage of production items that is purchased has risen, so has the importance of procurement.  Procurement is now one of the key strategic elements of an organization.  The goal of this module is for candidates to better understand the strategic role of procurement, as well as tactical approaches that support the strategy.

The focus of this module is on matters of strategic and tactical importance in procurement.  The module starts with a discussion of the key processes that support an organization's strategic procurement goals before comparing strategic and tactical procurement.  A comprehensive procurement strategy backed up by solid procurement tactics supports an organization's goal of providing customers with highly valued products.  Specific tactical matters are considered along the way.
