Planning is both the most critical and the most challenging phase of any procurement operation. It provides direction towards how the function intends to secure the supply security of the organization. When it comes to bid management, a sound procurement plan will help balance the often-conflicting goals of generating savings and satisfying internal customers.

In this course, we provide a thorough explanation on how to approach the planning of procurement objectives and initiatives. We delve into the different qualitative and quantitative forecasting techniques as they relate to inventory planning and we demonstrate how different vendor integration strategies can be applied to help sustain operations and projects.
