Just think about experiencing a rebirth of Purchasing in a way that’s exciting, liberating and gives you opportunity for rapid career advancement.
And imagine virtually eliminating the problems of dealing rogue internal customers, enabling purchasing values for management and customers and meeting supply base reduction targets!
Imagine eliminating the hassles of finding time to both placing PO’s and negotiate contracts, trying to meet cost savings goals, business process compliance and internal audits, dealing with the legal department and sticky contracts.
Sound good? Then you’re in for a treat.
Because you’re going to learn how to eliminate the 7 Biggest Mistakes that you and every other Purchasing Professional are most likely making on a daily basis
These mistakes add up to a lot of stress, headache, sleepless nights and low satisfaction rates in our profession. But you don’t have to continue to deal with that mental garbage. You can become an elite, world-class Purchasing Professional!
I spent 18 years at Intel Corporation, working my way up to running the entire global purchasing operations organization, with $2.2 BILLION in total scope and responsibility!
But it wasn’t always easy. Heh… that’s an understatement. I’ve been exactly where you are at one time or another.
Like you, I landed in purchasing by accident, and was wondering how my MBA program never even uttered the word “purchasing” to help prepare me for the challenges I was facing.
I was constantly stressed about my job, and was working 60 – 70 hours a week. The stress was affecting every corner of my life.
From my health, to my relationships I was generally unhappy and unsatisfied. I tossed and turned in bed many sleepless nights.
All this took its toll on me and I knew in my heart that I must make a change if I wanted to enjoy a fruitful career AND life.
I knew that there had to be a better way, a more fulfilling way.
A way to stop the madness of Purchasing – the daily grind that I called “management by distraction,” where seemingly endless small fires are constantly being put out, but nothing of significance ever gets done.
I was busier than ever, but always drew a blank when it came time to fill out my weekly status reports for management.
What did I really accomplish with all that racing around, chasing customer and supplier issues and excursions?
I wasn’t driving value added purchasing strategies; I was a full time fire-fighter, and so was everyone around me – and we were supposed to be the industry leaders!
I couldn’t figure it out. Something was deeply flawed about the whole process. The daily grind, struggle and frustration gets real old, real fast. Know what I mean?
See, we’ve all been lied too about how Purchasing should work. We were all being taught old, antiquated, bull-stuff that doesn’t work and never really did.
It Worked and I Was Shocked!
So starting at square one, in methodical, step-by-step fashion I deconstructed what we’d been taught and painstakingly reconstructed the entire process of Purchasing from beginning to end.
More sleepless nights, staring at the ceiling. Month upon month of testing and tweaking my processes but only a few negligible winners. I was getting frustrated and wanted to give up. Why the hell was I wasting my life with this?
Then, one Monday morning in the shower it struck me that I didn’t need to reconstruct the entire process. That was overkill. Like trying to push a rope uphill.
Everything I’d been working on suddenly became clear as a bell. I had all of the pieces but just needed to put them together without reinventing the wheel.
Four LONG days later I had changed it all. I’d produced a paradigm shift within Intel Corporation. A total transformation in Purchasing was born.
I was shocked that I was able to pull it off. I actually doubted it would be possible after so many months had passed by, but the good folks at Intel gave me their blessings to make it happen and encouraged me to stick with it.
Now, this completely new shift in how to do Purchasing has been saving Intel millions of dollars per year. My results and reputation earned me the Intel title of “THE Godfather of Negotiation Planning“.
And guess what? I actually started to ENJOY my job at Intel.
I became highly respected. I started getting a good nights sleep. My stress levels went from off the charts to almost nothing. I started getting a comfortable, full nights sleep.
My career and world felt brand new and I was rewarded substantially – personally and financially.
Now, Other Purchasing Pros Are Getting On Board
I started teaching my process and strategies to other companies and Purchasing Pros and proved how easily this knowledge can be transferred.
My new process is now saving untold millions for companies around the world.
What’s more, the Purchasing Pros who’ve been to my seminars and learned my process LOVE it too!
In fact, at a recent seminar, there was a guy who had been in purchasing for 10 years. Young, sharp guy. First time attending one of my seminars. His initials are FL. You’ll learn more about him later.
I caught up with FL in the hallway after the seminar, and he told me probably one of the best stories I’ve heard that directly relates to my work:
He said he had made the decision to leave purchasing. He was tired and frustrated with it and with all the broken aspects of purchasing.
He had already made the decision to quit and he had informed his family. My seminar rejuvenated him and motivated him and gave him new things to try.
He told me that by the end of the seminar, he had decided he wants to stay in purchasing, and he’s going to stay in his job and use these new techniques.
By the time I talked to him, he had already called his wife and told her the good news.
It is so humbling and meaningful to me that these principles are viewed as so powerful that people actually make career decisions based on them.
You’ll see FL’s video testimony on this site soon and I plan to stay in contact with him and keep up with his progress so that I can share it as inspiration and more proof for you.
Here are a few of the many testimonials people are saying about me and my training:
“Your principles and tools have revamped our negotiation planning and total cost analysis processes and results. You are THE Godfather of Negotiation Planning.” ~ Keith Erickson, Global Director of Corporate Purchasing, Intel Corporation
“Omid is a highly skilled and practical teacher/consultant. We just finished a very successful series of seminars. The reviews from attendees are among the highest I have seen.” ~ Institute for Supply Management Sacramento
“I am in the middle of working with a key supplier to take out unnecessary costs and processes on a project that seems to be out of control. The information in this series provides just the type of tools and principles I need to bring this under control.” ~ Director of Education for the Institute for Supply Management
“I am aiming to get additional attendees from my company to sign up; this seminar is too beneficial for company to keep as a secret. I found the contract review between UCC, CGIF and which state is best for the purchaser very useful. The three key take-aways for me that I will use regularly are: 1. Doing a comprehensive analysis on what could go wrong and adding that to the contract in advance. This way you are defining what is a minor breach and major breach and setting expectations up front rather than all the work on the backend. 2. I will always use the Most Favored Customer (MFC) clause and negotiate from there. This will reduce significantly the amount of time spent on price negotiations. 3. Most people already send out their contract with Ts & Cs in advance with an RFP but including the Contract changes by Supplier as a key part of the scorecard is a fresh approach that could knock 4-6 weeks off the contract negotiation with legal departments” ~ Institute for Supply Management N. California
“Omid is full of energy and enthusiasm, and has provided our organization important insight to how to gain breakthrough productivity gains and quality improvements in our contract negotiation process.” ~ President of the Brazilian Council of Purchasing Executives
Now, It’s YOUR Turn. Don’t Get Left Behind.
Seminars are excellent environments to learn groundbreaking, career and life changing processes, but I know that you may not have the luxury of flying to one of my seminars.
Travel, lodging and food expenses can really add up. Or the timing just isn’t right for one of several reasons.
So forget about the high cost of travel and lodging. Forget about the time being right for you to get away. Forget about the hassle of it all.

You can make a difference and be respected for it with my new course.

Here Are The 7 Deadly Mistakes You’re Going To Learn To Virtually Eliminate In My New Kick-Butt Video Membership Course!
Video Training Deadly Mistake #1. Internal customers and management often view purchasing as just managing price, or worse yet, as managing the expediting of orders.
Cost savings are viewed with skepticism by senior management, as they are wondering, if purchasing is saving us all this money, then why isn’t that same amount of money left over in the corporate budget?
I’m going to show you how to follow a proven methodology to establish itself as a value added profit center to the organization, because that’s when purchasing employees will be recognized for – and compensated as – the difference makers they are in enabling best-in-class TCO for the company.
Establishing Purchasing Value for Management and Customers
Video Training Deadly Mistake #2. Purchasing professionals everywhere are chasing down rogue internal customers that strike deals with suppliers, disclose budgets, and pre-cook deals before passing them onto purchasing as an emergency order.
Companies don’t help with policies prohibiting this behavior, so your going to learn a 3-step strategic alignment process to follow with internal customers that is absolutely critical because rogue customers will make your supply base size mushroom while also making your cost savings opportunities disappear.
Rogue Internal Customers
You will learn:
Video Training Deadly Mistake #3. Manually reducing the supply base size in the corporate vendor database is one of the biggest waste- of-time activities that purchasing professionals everywhere are being forced to engage in.
The focus is on the wrong metric.
You’re going to learn how to take a set of documented and proven steps to shift the focus to ensuring 95% of the dollars are going to 5% of the suppliers.
THAT is what where the biggest TCO influence comes about – and a dramatic reduction in the supply base will happen as a natural byproduct of this effort.
Making this shift is critical, and requires influencing management along the way. But the results that purchasing is able to generate with the freed up time as a result are priceless.
Meeting Supply Base Reduction Targets
Video Training Deadly Mistake #4. So many purchasing professionals are responsible for negotiating contracts AND placing purchase orders.
Having a trained purchasing professional that is fully capable of negotiating contracts also responsible for placing time-consuming purchase orders is like using a Ferrari to haul lumber.
It makes no sense.
There is a way out, and I’m going to show you a four step model that is used to influence management to make the shift.
Purchasing professionals trapped in these hybrid negotiator/PO-Expeditor roles need to make this shift because placing purchase orders is a morale killer that will stifle the purchasing professional’s performance review, salary, and ultimately career trajectory.
Nobody got on the fast track to being Director of Corporate Purchasing because they were so good at placing PO’s!
Finding Time to Both Place POs and Negotiate Contracts
Video Training Deadly Mistake #5. Purchasing cost savings targets are increased every year. Like clockwork, our suppliers know to expect us knocking for more savings from them.
How many times can they keep reducing profits so we can claim more savings?
It’s not sustainable. This purchasing model needs to go in a time capsule, right now!
The focus needs to shift to taking costs out of the supply chain, because there are real and proven methods to do this and that will result in dramatically better results for you and your career.
No special tools, systems, or ERP implementations are needed to do this; just the use of a documented and repeatable process that the pros use to change the TCO landscape completely.
The fact that you haven’t done it yet is great news – it means that there is a pearl in every oyster right now.
Trying to Meet Cost Savings Goals
Video Training Deadly Mistake #6. Scrambling to prepare for an internal audit is like cramming in a year’s worth of flossing right before a dental checkup – Who does this benefit?
You’ll learn a risk assessment methodology needs to be implemented that measures risks and controls and puts the right measures in place to ensure a business that is in control but still agile and nimble.
This process document is then used to have internal audit measure compliance to your own processes – instead of to their ideas regarding what they *think* you should be doing…
…which as we know is often completely disconnected with the realities of running a purchasing department.
Shifting to this risk assessment process is critical because it saves you time and keeps you in compliance to your own processes instead of to somebody else’s.
Business Process Compliance and Internal Audit
Video Training Deadly Mistake #7. The VAST majority of buyers are making fatal-flaw mistakes when it comes to negotiating contracts.
From saving the terms and conditions for last to excluding critical lesser known clauses that guarantee the best price in the marketplace to allowing the supplier the opportunity to markup their purchasing contract with all their issues and concerns.
We are killing ourselves, and our suppliers are loving it.
You’re going to learn and leverage a set of powerful insider secrets regarding contract terms and conditions negotiations that are complete game changers.
Doing so will increase supplier acceptance of our desired terms and will slash contract negotiation cycle time by 75% or more!
