What will I learn In the Supply Chain Management (SCM) Certification Training Course?

In the Supply Chain Management (SCM) Certification Training Course, you will learn to optimize your supply chain operations through efficient design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objectives of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging logistics, synchronizing supply with demand, and measuring performance.

Put simply, the main objective of SCM training is to provide students with the knowledge to improve overall supply chain organizational performance and customer satisfaction by enhancing product and service delivery to the customer. 

‚ÄúAll we are doing is looking at the timeline, from the moment the customer gives us an order to the point when we collect the cash, and we are reducing the timeline by reducing the non-value adding wastes.‚ÄĚ

Taiichi Ohno, father of Toyota Production System (TPS)

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 to achieve a more profitable outcome for all parties in the chain. The self-interest of one party has to be set aside for the benefit of the entire chain.

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.
