This one-of-a-kind executive development program provides high-potential procurement leaders with the tools and strategies needed to make dramatic improvements to their organization’s procurement practices in the digital age.

Through a combination of highly-engaging discussions, assessments, participant presentations, case studies and keynote speakers, this program teaches modern procurement strategies and frameworks, as well as how to assess current conditions for the purpose of choosing and implementing a strategy that will provide you with the greatest potential for added economic value and competitive advantage.

“For too long, procurement has been seen as the poor second cousin of other business functions. To truly become strategic, procurement executives must be able to harness the power of influence to create a business case and be able to sell the value of what strategic supply management can achieve for the business and for the customer. We have designed a class that will help people do just that.”

Rob Handfield, SCRC Executive Director, Bank of America University Distinguished Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management
