Leveraging Supply Market Intelligence for Procurement Professionals

One of a supply manager's often repeated requests is, “Where can I find information on suppliers?” Obtaining suitable market intelligence are issues that confront supply managers daily in their efforts to find, qualify, and use appropriate sources of supply. And we should never discount the important role that information plays within the risk management domain. The answer to this seemingly simple request for information has many aspects. First, supply organizations need to identify what potential suppliers exist for a particular commodity and where they are located. Next, they must determine which suppliers are capable of providing the required goods and at what total landed cost. Then, it is necessary to narrow the supplier pool, including through a structured evaluation and selection process to arrive at a smaller set of supplier candidates. And, of course, a rigorous evaluation must occur to identify the final supplier. These factors, while complex enough on their own, are further complicated when suppliers are located in foreign countries. This process requires supply managers to obtain, analyse, and use supply market intelligence (SMI). SMI exists in many forms and places; no single source of intelligence is available. This course approaches the subject of supply market intelligence by first defining the concept and relating it to the development of supply strategies. Next, we present the uses, levels, and categories of supply market intelligence. Finally, many different sources of SMI are identified.

Project Portfolio Management for Procurement Professionals

A competitive advantage for organizations includes doing the right projects and making sure that there are resources to complete those projects. Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is a set of business practices and processes that allows organizations to manage projects as a strategic portfolio, ensuring the alignment of programs and projects with organizational objectives. Executives need to regularly review entire portfolios and programs, determine why projects are or are not necessary, see where money is spent, prioritize projects, stage the start of new projects, spread resources appropriately and keep tabs on progress. Experienced project managers help executives by working with them in developing the mix of projects focused on achieving business initiatives within a program. They also help executives to manage the multiple parts of the organization’s project portfolio, secure vital resources resolving resource contentions and provide accurate progress status reports so the right decisions can be made to optimize the return on investments from projects in a program or portfolio. The course covers using appropriate project selection criteria, prioritizing projects, preventing "problem projects" from making it into a program or portfolio and determining when to terminate an existing project from either a program or a portfolio. It includes the topics of managing stakeholder expectations, coordinating multiple project managers working within a program or portfolio and manage resource conflicts among projects. Participants will learn how to prepare and communicate executive briefs on the performance of projects at the program or portfolio level and to define, track and report benefits for deliverables.
