Your procurement upskilling solution
Most procurement functions fail to optimise their talent potential. They are either too small, lacking the skills needed to operate as a strategic procurement function or do not have the time to train their people.
Yet, we cannot ignore the fact that the procurement skill base is undergoing a radical transformation. This change is spurred on by industry dynamics and necessitates that procurement functions:
- Leverage technology and talent in tandem
- Develop soft skills to encourage creativity and leadership
- Embed learning into their culture as a mechanism to develop and grow
The Efficio Academy was established to address changing procurement requirements, and help businesses attract, develop and retain talent. Serving as an extended training arm for your procurement requirements, the Academy offers a suite of trainings for the procurement practitioner covering a range of analytical, procurement and business or soft skills required. We provide clients the same training delivered to our consultants, who we nurture into procurement experts.
All of our trainers are consultants who bring extensive experience of developing innovative and strategic solutions to every day challenges faced by procurement practitioners. They regularly update material in line with industry developments, and make the trainings practical through case studies positively impacting the trainee’s business as usual activities.
