Procurement and Logistics for Real Estate Managers Course


The primary supposition is that although procurement may have general qualities that are valid despite the industrial context, the construction sector offers unique features with respect to procurement. These features are classified under four groupings: relationship management, supply risk, coordination, and learning/knowledge sharing. The key context-specific features include a varying relationship lifecycle, the unique and complex nature of products and services, customization, and the non-repetitive and temporary nature of projects. The key managerial issues involve the acquisition of a wide range of procurement competencies and the overall status of procurement in the organization. Hence, managing procurement efficiently and competently requires an understanding of all these aspects. This course in procurement and logistics for real estate managers covers a range of topics to equip professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge to efficiently manage the supply chain and operational aspects of real estate.
