One of the best decisions I made while in Diamond Bank (since merged with Access Bank Plc) was asking the Head of IT to allow me to spend time in the bank’s Administration Unit. I had wanted to understand how companies are managed, administratively – tenders, invoices, payment, etc. Luckily, he approved it as I made it a win-win: if you allow me, I will return back to IT to help build software for Admin! A key component of that experience was Procurement Management. How do you execute an efficient procurement regime in your firm? Not an easy call.
Tekedia Institute is proud to announce that Harold Nwariaku FCIPS has joined our Faculty. He is developing a course on Procurement Management. He was formerly the Procurement Portfolio Manager, Guinness Nigeria Plc; Senior Manager Procurement, MTN Nigeria; Senior Purchases Manager W/Africa, Procter & Gamble; and today the Lead Consultant at Harold & Co Consulting.
Mr. Nwariaku is a graduate of University of Nigeria Nsukka (BSc Accountancy) and Cranfield University (MSc Logistics & Supply Chain Management).
In markets, it is all about demand and supply, managed through allocation of factors of production. Procurement is a very critical part of that system. This course will help innovators, project champions, CEOs, members, etc run an efficient procurement process within their supply chain systems.
