Managing the Supply Chain


Ensuring you have the goods you need, when you need them!

Logistics and managing the supply chain are one of the most important functions in business today and it’s equally relevant to the operations manager as it is to the project manager.

If you understand how the supply chain works and where the issues might be before you start, you’ll not only ensure your project has the resources it needs when it needs them but, you’ll also have a competitive edge against other organisations.

Managing the Supply Chain will look at the key concepts that underpin logistics and the supply chain and those all-important drivers. The program will also look at inbound and outbound logistics as well as demand management and the various roles and functions involved in the supply chain. It will address how to select and combine different supply chain strategies and give you the skills to ensure you can begin to effectively and efficiently manage your supply chain.

This workshop is designed with plenty of interactive exercises to help participants practically learn the concepts of the supply chain. The program also provides plenty of group activities for hands on application of the best practice methods required for successful Supply Chain Management.
