Supply Chain Management (SCM) has been consistently cited as one of the most critical processes in any operational company. The impact SCM has on business is major given that SCM impacts customer service and the bottom line. However, SCM is not easy given the dynamic nature of the many uncertainties involved. This dynamism has necessitated many companies to upgrade the skills of their SCM employees in order to capitalize on this untapped opportunity. In this course, many SCM best practices will be discussed, and the solutions provided will help participants deal with various scenarios to ensure the continuous flow of material at the least possible cost.

Course Methodology

The course uses a mix of interactive and hands-on techniques. Beside the brief presentations by the consultant and the participants, there will be many individual and group exercises.  The work-related activities require participants to calculate or draw optimal solutions for different scenarios after understanding the process.
