Short term Certification Program - Strategic Sourcing

Trainer: Mr. Pattabhi Raman 


Welcome to the exciting, wonderful world of “Strategic Sourcing”.
During the first portion of the 21st century, more changes are taking place in the areas of Supply
Management, Supply Chain Management, Value Network Management, Buyer/Supplier alliances, and virtual corporations than in the history of mankind

Dynamic collaborative and trusting alliance relationships and networks are the keys to survival
and success in the 21st century. On the supply side, the relationships are best established and nurtured by
Supply Management Professionals. IT, Engineering, Marketing, Operations, Quality, and Finance all
play critical, enabling roles in our quest of value-added relationships.
The transformation from clerical and mechanical purchasing through proactive procurement and
Supply Management to Value Network Management parallels the evolution of the man-kind from
caves to visiting the moon.

The primary reason for this shift from tactical purchasing roles to strategic supply management is
because of its huge impact on the organization’s bottom line
