Practical Purchasing and Inventory Management Skills


Today, purchasing is recognized as having an overwhelming impact on the bottom line of the organization. It has a direct impact on the two forces that drive the bottom line: sales and costs. Purchasing is becoming a core competency of the firm, finding and developing suppliers and bringing in expertise that is highly valued by the organization. While, adequate inventory is critical in ensuring the continuity of operations within any organizations. However, inventory investment can be a very expensive affair. The direct costs of carrying inventory depress profits and ties up much-needed finance. Only through effective purchasing and inventory management can we provide this support without over-committing the organization’s funds, but at the same time be mindful of the related costs of not having inventory when it is needed by customers.
