Course Overview

 What is oil and gas supply chain?

The Oil & Gas industry is a high cost & high-risk industry. The contracts negotiated with suppliers are high value & often poorly established contracts are a source of problems and source of revenue leakages for the industry. Is there a way contracts can be managed that no loopholes are left open for suppliers to capitalize on?

The daily hustle-bustle at the office can be a cover for several occurrences or miss-outs in the business transactions that can cost the industry a fortune. Which are these transactions & how can managers be sensitized to keep a watch for these revenue leakages that are costing this industry dearly.

Often established ways of doing business become so comforting for employees that they see no reason to change.

Change may not scream to draw the attention of managers to it and managers may continue to focus on what they have been habitually focusing on, not realizing their current processes are a source of many of their business problems & cause of their mediocre performance.

Carefully designed Processes that suit the new business environment can lead to dramatic breakthroughs in performance for the Oil & gas Industry.

 What is procurement in oil and gas industry?

Knowing the suppliers and their industries can get greater savings for the Oil & Gas industry than ruthless & brutal negotiations to get. Suppliers are a source of great ideas, be it a superior process, new markets, new technologies or substitute material, such ideas get extraordinary performance leaps for organizations that negotiations alone may not.

Organizations that consider their supplier’s adversaries do not explore the avenues of growth that a well-thought supplier management strategy may lead to.
