Professionalization Courses | 0CMC9GES | Product Management and Sourcing in Fashion

Globalization, imports, exports, productivity, profitability, competitiveness, new technologies, innovation, integral logistics, continuous improvement... are terms that, nowadays, are part of the vocabulary of the business world and to which the fashion sector should not remain alien, but quite the opposite. Currently, any new project must be based not only on design, innovation and quality, but also needs to apply strategies for improvement and flexibility of production processes, reduction of industrial prices and reduction of response time if success is to be achieved.

We are immersed in an environment of very rapid change, with new retail channels and formats, which oblige companies to apply the most advantageous marketing practices that allow them to compete in a market where consumers can choose from a wide range of products. In addition, the fashion sector is characterized by the complex management of production flows and by the need, increasingly pressing, to give an immediate response to the market, which means designing effective processes in quick and short times.

Achieving a competitive and quality product requires purchasing the right quantities at the right time, the right country, etc. Therefore, it is essential a perfect management of purchases and production control. All of this makes it advisable to have an adequate background to know the most effective management instruments for making the necessary decisions at any time.
