Purchasing Training

We have an internationally recognised training programme within category purchasing, and we have provided support for several of Sweden’s largest and most prominent companies to raise the competency level of their purchasing departments.

Customised trainings in purchasing

Our training programmes are aimed at those who want to become experts within category management. In 2017, a training programme that we were a central part of was named one of the world’s eight best by Procurement Leaders. The training that we offer our clients is also the same that all of our management consultants undergo when they first start at EFFSO. We focus primarily on three areas: analytical ability, change management and purchasing studies. All parts of our training are case-based and focused on the practical application of different methods and models in our everyday work.

We have developed learning modules that cover the whole category management approach, from defining objectives in a project, running analyses, communicating with stakeholders and finally sending out RFQs, negotiating and following up on results. Depending on your goals and preconditions, we can combine our modules into a training package that will give you optimal support.


Download “Effective spend analysis”

We always recommend to create a spend analysis based on available data first and only then to analyse the need for new order and invoicing routines. This is because the benefit of an early spend analysis at the category and supplier level is very high and any decisions about new administrative routines must be made based on many more aspects than the need for follow-up.
