The one-day workshop delivers hands-on training on how to build cost models to represent the client’s spend categories. Cost models are used by categories managers to quantify how much their products should cost and have proven to be an effective negotiation factor with suppliers. Analysts from IHS Markit will lead a one-day workshop on cost modeling. Attendees will leave the workshop with at least one cost models built by the end of the day and the skills to do this with confidence on their own in the future.
