Identify a company or industry that you are either familiar with or one with which you would like to become more familiar. As a purchasing professional of the chosen company or industry, your job is to determine the type of purchasing organizational structure that can effectively manage procurement functions.

Analyze how your chosen structure will support the following:

  • Vendor sourcing
  • Supplier cost objectives

  • Development of overall purchasing competency
  • Material forecasting and scheduling
