I thought the programme was outstanding. The lectures were solid gold, really aiming for the high profile Procurement Professional. The stakeholder model is perfect, really straight-forward, friendly to use and helps to boost engagement (I've already used it for one sourcing calendar strategy with some complex stakeholders and it went beautifully).

The Mini MBA gave me the opportunity to listen and learn from experienced and seasoned CPOs. The icing on the cake was a wrap-up at the end of the week of our own learnings with many valuable comments from the other participants. Back at work, the real work started based upon my learnings, I was able to develop a strategy for procurement that will help me to increase CPO value for my company.

The Mini MBA gave me the tools to present a stronger case for procurement, aligning the value proposition it brings with the business performance metrics. You may have good programmes in place already, but they are typically isolated. This course helped bringing it all together. For me in particular, the big thing was applying all learning topics in a final succinct presentation, which helped me prioritize our goals and build the logic for our procurement strategy going forward.
