Why Choose our Advanced Learning Offerings?

Most organisations fail to see much 'real business value' delivered after they have undertaken internal and/or external training to improve the competence of their staff in Procurement and Supply Chain Management (PSCM). The reason for this is because most of the training received is either too theoretical and/or completely unrelated to the delivery of value within the 'real-life' and 'real-time' day-to-day operations of the organisation.


In response to these concerns, IIAPS offers a unique approach to advanced learning in category management and strategic sourcing that is based on the development and implementation of real-life category sourcing strategies.


The case for selecting this advanced learning offering is compelling. It overcomes the concerns that many funding organisations have (see here) and provides the following benefits:

  • Transfer of advanced knowledge and understanding about category management and strategic sourcing
  • Access to advanced world-class thinking and QV methodology/templates for strategy development
  • Learning by 'hearing' and 'seeing', but mainly by 'doing'
  • Development of facilitation and corporate engagement competencies
  • Category strategies specific to the organisation
  • Immediate value for money (VFM) and return on investment (ROI) as costs covered by benefits/value from implementation of strategy
  • Ongoing stream of potential value improvement initiatives as learning is applied to future strategy developments
  • Overcomes distance learning issues through face-to-face training master classes and QV workshop
  • Minimal disruption to company as strategy forms part of their 'normal workload' and time out of office is minimised
