(The training manual was) chalk full of information, and breaks down information clearly. Exercises/homework allow for independent learning to gain understanding on topics of discussion. (The instructor has) so much knowledge! I was never told, "I don't know that: or, "I don't know the answer to that question." The application of past experiences helped me understand the concepts better.

In this supply chain management training class students will learn to optimize their operations in the design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging logistics, synchronizing supply with demand, and measuring performance.
Put simply, the main objectives of supply chain management are to improve the overall organizational performance and customer satisfaction by enhancing product and service delivery to the customer.
The focus of supply change management is on cooperation and trust and the recognition that, properly managed, the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts. It is the management of upstream and downstream relationships with suppliers and customers to deliver superior customer value at less cost to the supply chain as a whole to achieve a more profitable outcome for all parties in the chain. The narrow self-interest of one party has to be set aside for the benefit of the chain as a whole.
Effective development and management of your supply chain network will cut your costs and enhance your customer value through supplier relationship management. Resulting in a sustainable source of advantage in today’s turbulent marketplace, where demand is difficult to predict, and supply chains need to be more flexible as a result.
The real competition today is not between companies, but between supply chains. The winning approach to supply chains is an integrated perspective that takes account of networks of relationships, sustainability, and product design, as well as the logistics of procurement, distribution, and fulfillment.
Supply Chain Management Training examines the tools, core processes, and initiatives that ensure businesses gain and maintain their competitive advantage.
This class will benefit the supply chain manager as well as the logistics manager.
