Savings & Cost Optimisation Training provides professional buyers with tools that help them analyse cost, identify "grey areas" and prepare factual argumentation for discussions with suppliers. During the training we discuss real life examples for direct and indirect procurement.

On practical examples we will prove that standardised methodology can be applied to anything you want to buy. It can be product or service. You choose. Test us :)

We use real examples from direct and indirect procurement. Participants work with Excel forms for cost management developed by Eveneum. The training is divided into 5 areas always useful for a professional buyer:

  • Preparation: cost breakdown & where suppliers hide their margin
  • Price management: cost models & TCO for product and service
  • Inventory management: MOQ, EOQ, Safety Stock
  • Value for money: needs management & Functional Specification
  • Savings in the processes: LEAN, Value Stream Mapping

Participants receive automated Excel forms, based on best practices, ready to be used at work. With these tools they will be able to decipher offers even without the Cost Breakdown from a supplier.

90% of your success is due to the proper preparation. Join the training! Your next negotiation will be based on facts and not emotions.
