" After several years in operational buying, I landed a tactical/strategic position as a procurement officer with category, negotiation, sourcing and agreement responsibility. I was really happy at first but when my manager with 25 years of procurement experience used procurement expressions I had never heard about; I felt my confidence and competence was lacking. My bachelor in industrial economics wasn't enough. After completion of this course, I feel confident and competent because I know what tools to use and when. " - Fredrik Jansson Sweden/Shanghai, experience from recycling, pharmaceutical and life science businesses.
