Course Learning Outcomes

The supply chain spans the entire organisation from the sourcing of product, through production and delivery to the customer.  In addition, it includes the return of product and the importance of customer relationship management, throughout the chain.

Today’s supply chain is the critical activity in any company, and as such, its basic operation should be understood.  Many individuals, working across areas of an organisation such as Sales, Marketing, Finance, Human Resources and others, don’t necessarily understand the full extent of supply chain, and often miss the importance of decisions and their implications on the business.

This training course provides an overview of the supply chain, the challenges and the key impacts of supply chain decisions, in a way that is understandable for everyone.  The PerformanSC training team bring many years of hands on experience, across all disciplines within the supply chain, drawing on real-life examples and challenges to provide clarity and understanding to trainees.

The course content can be modified to meet the specific needs of your business.  Just reach out to have an initial conversation.
