If you are optimising an area of spend, the tools in this course will be crucial: document step-by-step the lifecycle of any goods or services purchased. Analyse the costs throughout the lifecycle, identify cost elements and look at foolproof mathematical methods for calculating total costs.

Fully exploit the opportunities of real cost savings through a spread sheet-based model: you will be able to create a baseline for procurement costs against which you can measure future savings.

This session is NOT intended for individuals who already have extensive experience and knowledge in calculating, measuring and managing TCO. However, it will be valuable for those who have a fundamental understanding of the process, but require practical, step-by-step guidance in ensuring that TCO is effectively calculated.
