As a procurement consultancy the transfer of knowledge and skills is a critical component of Odesma’s model when working with your team, whether it is through a change management programme, a sourcing cost reduction activity or a standalone skills development activity. Odesma have a strong capability in a number of procurement-related areas founded on our personal experience working in the supply chain over the last 30 years.
The training offered by our procurement consultancy, Odesma is augmented by both methodology creation and transfer, as well as personal mentoring.
Our approach seeks to be practically applied during the training or change programme, with real organisational outcomes. For example during strategic sourcing training we expect each delegate to create a source plan for their category which can then be implemented. We then follow up with the delegate after the course to support application and benefits delivery.
Odesma procurement consultancy offers a range of training opportunities for your teams, centred upon procurement and supply chain for example:
- Strategic Sourcing – the practitioners approach; backed by a comprehensive methodology that can be deployed to your organisation if required,
- Procurement Transformation – incorporating strategy, organisation and people, process and technology,
- e-Sourcing application
- Sourcing for non-Procurement professionals,
- How to defer price rises, conduct cost analysis, conduct multi variable (complex) negotiations.
Odesma are committed to ensuring the continuing practical application of the methods learnt through personal follow-up and review.
