Use effective supply chain management to improve profitability and market potential.

Supply chain management has become tremendously important in an increasingly competitive marketplace. The term “supply chain” refers to the entire network of companies working together to design, produce, deliver and service products. While many companies focus on manufacturing and quality improvements within their organization, the best companies extend their efforts beyond their organization to encompass the entire supply chain. 

This interactive training session encompasses the key elements of supply chain management and provides a basis for developing a strong supply chain management function that can improve profits and market potential.

Not only will you get your supply chain management efforts aligned with corporate strategies, you can make certain that improvements in supply chain efforts are paying off.

Our expert facilitators will tailor the program to the specifics of your situation and the participants.

Most companies struggle with even the basics of balancing supply and demand in their supply chains. For example, supply chain professionals know sales and operations planning (S&OP) is important to your company. However, few companies can actually say they have a strong S&OP process in their business. This interactive training session can change that.

Participants will be introduced to the fundamental and basic aspects of supply chain management, including basic resource planning systems, the interrelationships between purchasing, vendor selection, sources of supply, and the role of technology.  Everyone will leave with a better understanding of an integrated approach to planning, acquisition, flow and distribution from raw materials to finished products.
