Total Cost of Ownership & Opportunity Analysis: 22-23 Nov, Jhb

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) methodology and Opportunity Analysis (OA) are valuable strategic tools for unpacking key cost elements and resources to drive sourcing initiatives, together with the appropriate allocation of assets.

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 two-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 optimise the allocation of assets to extract maximum value from sourcing
