"If the purchasing function really wants to count as a value-added within the organisation, the very first priority is to map out strategic purchasing. This map will be dependent on the maturity of the lifecycle of the purchasing department and the overall structure of the organisation. This two-day programme helps to get a full grasp of purchasing through practical examples and the exchange of best practices, all serving as a stepping stone to apply the concepts and models learned."

"I thoroughly enjoyed Vlerick's programme on Purchasing Management. This well-organised course offers fascinating insights into today's world of Procurement and Supply Chain Management. The approach is theoretical and practical at the same time. Real-life cases are being used as a starting point for lively discussions. The interaction with colleagues coming from different industries and from all over the world makes the course even more interesting."

  1. Running your company the smart way

    Everyone is talking about Industry 4.0 – from the Internet of Things, additive manufacturing and the cloud through to artificial intelligence, augmented reality and blockchain. But what does it all mean in practice? It’s not a question of if Industry 4.0 will drastically change the way we do business. It’s a question of when and how quickly. So how can you apply this technology in your business – not just to improve production and performance, but to make a difference for customers?
  2. Local Speed Factories: when the need for speed is vital

    In the 1990s, Adidas moved its entire production to low-wage countries in Asia, but in 2015 it re-opened highly automated Speed Factories in Germany and recently also in the US. These factories are only responsible for a few per cent of Adidas’ total yearly production, but they guarantee extra short delivery times. Why are Adidas and other companies moving a small share of their manufacturing activities back home?
