- Value Delivery
IIAPS offers a unique approach to the delivery of business value and learning. Real business value is defined as improving quality, cost and delivery in 'real-time' category sourcing strategies.
The International Green Belt, Red Belt and Black Belt in Advanced Purchasing & Supply are delivered and assessed through the development and implementation of real-life category strategies. This leads an immediate ROI and to the development of advanced competence in the identification, and subsequent implementation, of category management and strategic sourcing.
To obtain life-time Full Professional Membership of the Institute (MIIAPS) it is necessary to complete each of these three courses of study. Each of these courses of study has 7 Steps to complete, continuously supported by IIAPS reading, e-learning resources and mentoring support services. Additionally, students completing the first course of study – the Green Belt - have to attend two IIAPS Training Master Classes and receive facilitation support from IIAPS for the QV® Value Improvement Workshop.
Each of these 'learning by doing' courses of study, delivering an immediate ROI and tangible business value in 'real-life' category sourcing strategies, is delivered in two broad phases.
The most significant value for the sponsoring clients is the creation of internal consultants/facilitators capable of delivering an immediate ROI and an ongoing stream of value improvement initiatives in the future.
If candidates do not wish to pursue life-time Full Professional Membership of the Institute (MIIAPS) they can terminate their course of study after completion of the Green Belt. They will then be awarded the Associate Green Belt Membership of the Institute. Those wishing to obtain Full MIIAPS certification must, however, complete Phase 2 of the course of study, as follows.
* Students are not required to undertake the Red Belt or Black Belt accreditations if they do not wish to do so.
