Ah, November and December. That wonderful time of year where procurement leaders have to put together their budgets for the next year.

One of the budget line items that procurement leaders have traditionally struggled with is the procurement training budget. If you’re like most procurement leaders at this time of year, you’re asking yourself questions like:

  • What training does my team need?
  • Do I train everyone on the same thing or customize the plan for each individual?
  • How much will that training cost?

Coming up with answers to these questions has always been challenging…until now!

The Next Level Purchasing Association has a solution for you. We are offering our “Procurement Training Budget Planning Tool” for free!

Not only is it free and will help you quickly arrive at the answers you need to have when planning your procurement training budget, but it is easy to use! It’s just an Excel spreadsheet with some intelligence built into it to help you identify what training is right for which employee, see how much that plan will cost, and then tweak until you arrive at a number your CFO can live with!
