Learn all about Project Procurement Management in our latest PMP course Module



By 



As the days of Movember tick by, and my moustache moves from pitiful to remotely comical, we move ever closer towards the final modules of our PMP course. We've now completed 12 of 13 modules, but fear not, we still have a hoard of free practice tests and exercises to throw your way. 

By then end of 2013, you should have everything you need to pass your PMP, and in case you've been ignoring me since the 16th of September, it's all for free! Don't say we never treat you....

Enough chat, lets learn about project procurement management in this weeks module.


What is Project Procurement Management?

In this module you will learn all about the process of engaging with third party organisations as part of a project. This involves identifying sellers, contract negotiation, selection and then on going management of procurement relationships through to project completion.

What is covered in Project Procurement Management?

These are the sub sections you will work through in this weeks module:
12.1 - Plan Procurement Management - Planning
  • The process of documenting project purchasing decisions, specifying the approach and identifying potential sellers.
12.2 - Conduct Procurements - Executing
