Procurement Learning congratulates Mr Adeel Zeerak from Pakistan on securing a fantastic 92% on CPPP MOOC program! Read about his professional journey and motivation to complete the course.

I did B.E. in Mechanical Engineering in 1993 from NED University of Engineering and Technology, Pakistan. Later I did MBA in 1999 with a bi-major in Marketing and Finance from Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Pakistan.

I started my professional career in 1993 and currently have a total work experience of 24 years. Before joining a government organization, I have worked for almost 13 years in the private sector in Pakistan. Currently I am working at Pakistan Institute of Management (PIM) since 2006. PIM is a Government organization with its head office in Karachi and is reporting to the federal ministry of Industries and Production. PIM provides training, education and consulting services to Pakistani government and private sector organizations. I am working here as a Deputy General Manager.

Although I have not worked in procurement department of any organization but I have learnt a lot about procurement while dealing with procurement departments of many professional organizations during my six years of Organizational Marketing career. Other than the CPPP and CPCM I have studied procurement as part of following trainings that I received:

I am a Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) in 2012 from APICS, USA. Procurement was a part of this supply chain management training.
I have received Green Productivity training from Asian Productivity Organization (APO) during 2008. We were introduced the concept of Green Purchasing as part of this training.

Pakistan Institute of Management (PIM) organizes various training programs including trainings on Procurement Management and Supply Chain Management. I personally conduct a short training program on the topic of ‘Effective Purchase Management’. Executives from various public sector organizations also come to us for the trainings. I therefore wanted to learn more about public procurement and therefore got interested in CPPP.

CPPP is a very valuable training on the topic of public procurement and I highly recommend it to all professionals working at the public sector.

The Certificate Program in Public Procurement is interesting, attractive and very informative.  After completing the CPPP, I feel more confidence in planning and managing public procurement activities, and feel my knowledge has been more organized, and enhanced my ability to deliver trainings. Public procurement is essential in all countries, and considered as the main pillar towards managing public money in transparent, efficient and effective way.  Day after day I feel I am more committed and passionate to keep going in this field to accumulate more experience and professionality from one side, and to transfer knowledge to others through my offered trainings, consultations, and coaching on the other side. I advise all professional to complete the CPPP program, it is well designed, organized and comprehensive.  Completing the course will not only enhance experience in procurement, it would create a logical pattern of thinking, and advance the analytical skills to deal with diversified situations.

Procurement is not only about procedures, it is about talent and ability to be creative, accurate, and do things right from the first time, CPPP is a good map to be there.
