About this event
Cooperatives uphold a set of values about the economy and these values work best when they are practised through the cooperative’s buying and selling activities. This course will introduce participants to the planning tools that can be used to deliberately align a cooperative’s values with how it buys supplies and sells services and products.
By the end of this course participants will:
- Understand the values that cooperatives support
- Have developed a plan to align the values of the cooperative to its purchasing and procurement processes
- Have tools to deliberately use values as a marketing and sales strategy
