Introduction to Specification Writing

Specifications are the foundations of the procurement cycle.

In today’s business environment where businesses are outsourcing large parts of their activities, the role of the specification is becoming increasingly important.

Goods and Services provided by external companies are now complex and have become a key area that requires particular attention. Poor specifications will lead to dissatisfied customers and the goods or service will not meet the business need.

Specifications are the foundations of the procurement cycle, a poorly written or structured specification will be a major reason why companies fail to receive Goods and Services that the ultimate customer desired or thought they were going to get.

This course is essential and suitable for both technical and commercial personnel and for anyone seeking to improve their performance and understanding in what is now seen as a key role requiring a professional approach.
