Supply chain management touches every aspect of our lives. The impact of buy-one-get-one-free deals on food waste, automotive industry product recalls, and queues in accident and emergency departments are all supply chain issues. As someone working in logistics, purchasing or planning, this course will help you to better understand the challenges facing your particular industry.
We will teach you best-practice techniques, and share tools and frameworks that you can use to enable you to make best-for-business decisions and implement efficient demand and supply planning processes.
Our course covers how to deliver added value to the consumer through interlinked supply chains, efficient logistics and end-to-end business perspectives. This broad knowledge will enable you to better understand how the current business environment effects supply and logistics and what to plan for in the future.
