Learn how project management concepts apply and enhance supply management. Gain an understanding of the tools and techniques used to initiate and plan a project, execute and manage a project, and add maximum value when participating in someone else's project. Possible initiatives for the improvement of supply management through the application of project management concepts include: strategic planning/sourcing, the purchasing function, contract development and administration, negotiations, transportation and logistics, supplier management and performance, cost reduction, and outsourcing.

In this highly interactive seminar, participants will have the opportunity to apply concepts learned to their own real-world environment. The class is a combination of lecture and discussion interspersed with time to apply what is learned to your own project and to get feedback from other attendees. As shown on the Course Outline, the "Application of Lessons Learned" is an integral activity in each step of the project management process.

Participants must bring to class sufficiently detailed information to enable them to work on a prospective project from their own organization — this may be a project you want to initiate or one in which you will participate. By the end of the training, you should have accomplished the primary objective of the course which is to have the essential elements of your project laid out so that you will be able to return to work and begin implementation.
