Course Overview

It was absolutely true when Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th President of the US, said, “You will not find it difficult to prove that battles, campaigns, and even wars have been won or lost primarily because of logistics.” Since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in 2019, many companies have been disrupted due to their weak supply chains. However, technology paved the way for Digital Supply Networks (DSN) that enabled decision-making through an incessant movement of information, products, services, and analytics. This accentuated the need for skilled Supply Chain Management (SCM) professionals capable of steering smarter supply chains of the future.

SCM is a critical function that has a significant bearing on the twin goals of operational efficiency and customer responsiveness, thereby shaping the overall success of an organisation. This programme is designed to enhance the capabilities of supply chain professionals to achieve performance excellence. It covers a focused set of relevant and contemporary SCM topics such as sourcing strategy, forecasting & inventory management, sales & operations planning, supplier management & development, logistics & distribution planning, and supply chain analytics. It also provides participants an introduction to advanced topics such as sustainability, reverse supply chains, performance-based contracts, service supply chains, and Industry 4.0 impacts.
