About the Workshop
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis uncovers all of the lifetime costs that follow
from owning assets. Opportunity Analysis (OA) identifies methods for capturing value
through sourcing.
The central aim of effective strategic procurement is to satisfy business needs and, at the
same time, provide value for money. In order to meet this aim, it is first necessary to
understand the needs, establish all the costs associated with satisfying such needs over
time and ensure the best use of financial assets and other pertinent resources for
achieving this goal.
This five-day workshop includes case studies and worked examples, as delegates explore
how to understand and break down asset ownership cost elements and how to best
optimize the allocation of assets to extract maximum value from sourcing, including:
