For individuals aiming to enhance their strategic supply sustainability and operational effectiveness.
Participants will explore all aspects of supply chain management (SCM) strategy in their organizations, from relationships between logistics and SCM, to supply chain mapping, performance measurement using a balanced scorecard, and implementation of supply chain management.
Supply chain managers are in a natural position to spearhead sustainability initiatives—by using resources to meet current needs without compromising the ability to meet future needs. Students will examine traditional industry models as well as those that encompass new concepts such as value constellations and business ecosystems.
