Innovation capture is key
Purchasing used to be about finding the cheapest prices. This is no longer the case. Today purchasing is about working with strategic suppliers to capture innovation and implement it as quickly as possible.
The focus is now on innovation capture and speed-to-market and the role of purchasing has become extremely strategic. Key suppliers have now become a real force of proposition. This change requires a totally different breed of purchasing professionals.
The MAI offers several training courses in purchasing. The MAI is recognized by multinationals as being at the leading age of purchasing and innovation capture for new product development.
