Partnership LSM

KRONOS GROUP is pleased to announce the creation of the first specialization in Procurement in Belgium: the Chaire “Sourcing & Procurement”. This is the result of a fruitful collaboration with LSM (Louvain School of Management) and will be officially inaugurated in the spring of 2018. Why? Activities linked to the procurement management, to the supplier’s development and monitoring are becoming increasingly strategic in the management and development of a company. The new technologies and the shorter deadlines imposed for the introduction of new products have only reinforced this trend. In addition, the recruitment and performance of procurement executive in companies poses a real challenge due to a lack of knowledge and trainings in this field. In fact, until now, no cursus dedicated to this field existed in Belgium. Therefore, companies willing to hire this profile had to recruit abroad. KRONOS GROUP, leader in Procurement services on the Belgian market, wanted to change this trend and train our future Belgian procurement experts. What? This Chair includes 90 hours courses in “Sourcing and Procurement”. Lessons are given in English and are currently open to 150 students in Business Engineering, Business Management and CEMS. Master 1 will effectively start in September 2018. Stay tuned for more information: Linkedin or uclouvain.be

A pragmatic 7 steps methodology was presented along with business cases experienced at customer’s premises and concrete example in order to book savings while adding value to their business on a 3 to 6 months’ timeframe. All participants were able to expose their own commodities and come back at work with concrete best practices and ideas for improvement.
