The job of a procurement professional doesn’t stop once the contract is signed. The purchase of goods, services or technology require unique strategies during performance. This course is designed to help you ensure that a process is put in place to review and manage supplier’s contract performance. To do this, students will learn how to ensure the supplier stays on time and on budget, even when the needs of the company change. At all times, students will learn how to manage risk as performance occurs. Students will learn how to successfully manage a project, the importance of planning, how to adhere to best practices, the use of supplier evaluation techniques and proper reporting. By understanding the fundamentals of project management and contract administration, students will be better prepared to initiate a project, of any size and position it for success. In this course, you will identify effective project management practices and their related processes. Forms will be given to students to help achieve the goals of this course and exercises highlight project management dos and don'ts.
