Overall Description: 

This course provides what effective supply chain professionals need to be able to ensure their organisations become industry pace setters, by better managing their supply chains to achieve reduced costs, whilst at the same time, improving service levels. Global trade has brought about proportionally high levels of risk and uncertainty. In turn, this uncertainty creates a risk spiral that is accompanied by increased cost and reduced levels of service.

This course shows how to apply useful tools and techniques to successfully manage this dilemma and paradox.
