3 Coursewares
Procurement Lab
Udemy
June 26, 2022
This course isn't about general procurement, supplier management, or negotiations. Such training is abundant elsewhere on Udemy.

As a consultant and tutor, I can spend long hours explaining each topic in detail. I will overwhelm you with information, which may be sometimes difficult to digest and operationalize.

It takes years of hands-on experience to learn how to process the theoretical constructs into light and valuable tools for daily use.

Putting on our students' shoes, we tried to answer simple yet essential questions that make sense for every procurement professional, either a beginner or an expert.

- How to apply Agile methodology in procurement?

- How to excel in strategic sourcing?

- How to deliver more value?

- How to work more effectively?

Each section of our course should provide a few possible answers by offering best-practice strategic procurement concepts, methods, and tools and trying them in real sourcing situations.

Then it's up to you to judge which solution you can take to your office the next day upon finishing this course and exercise new ways of working.

Key topics of this procurement training course include:

1. Definitions of Agile. Iron Triangle of Project Management. The actual cost of Time-to-Market. Agile supplier selection. Fixed-scope negotiations.

2. Reverse marketing. Strategic procurement management vs. purchasing. Procurement cost evolution. Sourcing strategy. Alternatives to the RFP process.

3. The evolution of the procurement process. TCO and value-based procurement. Sourcing levers. Value delivery.

4. Buying channels. Spend profile analysis. Value stream mapping for business-process optimization.

We will propose a dozen practical exercises and cases to try and decide what fits better.

If this course succeeds, we will keep amending it with new concepts and exercises. Our duty in procurement is far from over, and we gain new experiences daily to share with the procurement community.

Adaptive Sourcing: Agile Procurement in Practice
Udemy
June 01, 2022
This online training course suits beginners and highly-skilled experts who must develop core competencies for contract management, outsourcing, and vendor relationships.

It provides compulsory basic knowledge of ground economic and psychological theories that set the foundations of outsourcing business and contract relations.

This course unites two worlds – IT and Procurement. Both functions are going through significant business and technological transformation to comply with the Industry 4.0 mandate.

Our course is efficient - it is half exercises, case studies, and applying best practices straight after learning.

Instead of just talking about Agile procurement, we'll suggest actionable advice for its realization synthesized from classical theories and intuitive concepts. For example, we will provide the mathematical model to calculate the value of Time-to-Market and prove the critical importance of Agile procurement.

In 2022, the standardized "unisex" governance is a repelling anachronism, damaging the company and its suppliers more than any competitors.

We need to apply flexible business processes depending on the situation selectively.

A bimodal operating model precisely allows that. Therefore, it attracted IT and strategic sourcing professionals, creating "bimodal IT" and "bimodal procurement."

This course will explain the origins of the bimodal operating model, its bright sides, and its deficiencies.

We'll present Adaptive Sourcing as the synthesis of different concepts, which leverages the bimodal procurement process but goes well beyond its remits. Essentially, it is the practical realization of Agile procurement.

We'll also propose a custom sourcing strategy for IT goods and services that puts our theoretical definitions into the negotiation practice.

Indeed, Adaptive Sourcing is one of the implementations of Agile Procurement 4.0 – flexible, variable, and streamlined. It brings additional cost savings, stakeholder satisfaction, and business process optimization.

Strategic procurement and sourcing managers and IT experts may start practicing it immediately!

Foundations of Contracts and Outsourcing
Udemy
May 15, 2022
This online training course suits beginners and highly-skilled experts who must develop core competencies for contract management, outsourcing, and vendor relationships.

It provides compulsory basic knowledge of ground economic and psychological theories that set the foundations of outsourcing business and contract relations.

Our course explains the benefits of outsourcing as a blend of decision-making, heuristics, incomplete contracts, relationships, and trust. We will wear our BPO vendor's shoes to understand their business objectives and risk-mitigation methods incorporated into different types of contracts.

We will leverage Behavioral Economics - an elegant synthesis of psychological, cognitive, emotional, and cultural aspects that explain the human side of contract management and the outsourcing process.

With the help of Rational Choice Theory, Bounded Rationality, Transactional Cost Theory, Agency Theory, and Incomplete Contracts, this course will tell you a story of business needs, relational norms, and mutual dependence in the modern world of opportunism and irrationality.

We will teach ways to apply conscious outsourcing decisions (e.g., using the FORT model) and develop trust-based relations with our contractors.

We will promote back-office functions as creators of business value and relationship capital.

We will synthesize all course materials into a multi-dimensional outsourcing strategy for our students to test and apply in practice.
