In the world of procurement, where every decision can impact an organisation’s success, there’s a course that stands out from the rest. We sat down with David Coffey our lead Trainer on the PAI’s Certificate in Public Procurement – 8 Day Programme, to delve into what makes this course unique and how it can benefit professionals in the field.

Expertise that Sets Us Apart

One of the defining factors of this course is the calibre of individuals behind it. Our team, with their tremendous experience in monitoring procurement functions, managing complex tenders, and driving organisations through procurement change, is truly second to none. When it comes to education and training in procurement, having experts like these by your side can make all the difference.

Strategic Procurement Focus

This course takes a different approach—it’s all about Strategic Procurement. We’re not delving into tactical purchasing; instead, we’re focusing on how to extract real value from procurement processes. To kick things off, we ensure that all attendees have a common understanding of what Strategic Procurement entails. This foundation is crucial for aligning our discussions within the context of public procurement in Europe, especially in Ireland.

Navigating Complexities with Confidence

Procurement can be a complex world, with ever-evolving regulations and procedures. We’re here to demystify it all. From European procurement regulations and frameworks to directives and various types of procedures, we leave no stone unturned. We guide attendees through the process, from defining requirements to evaluating responses, making even the most intricate aspects accessible and understandable.

Comprehensive Approach

Our course offers a comprehensive view of procurement. It’s not just about the process; we also explore the legal aspects, providing a balanced perspective. We draw on a wide array of experiences from different industries and categories, giving attendees a holistic understanding of procurement.

A Unique Perspective

What truly sets this course apart is the 25 years of experience in procurement evolution and change. We delve into critical aspects like the procurement operating model, the technology landscape in procurement (including AI and SAAS), and the development of procurement strategy and corporate procurement plans. This breadth of knowledge equips attendees with the tools and insights needed to excel in the ever-evolving world of procurement.

In summary, this course goes beyond the typical procurement process. It offers a broader framework that encompasses expertise, strategic thinking, legal understanding, and decades of experience. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just starting your journey in procurement, this course promises to be of significant value. Don’t miss the opportunity to enhance your skills and take your procurement career to new heights.
