Overview

Create value with your supply chain

Goods and services reach end users through increasingly intricate channels, involving people and processes all over the world, supported by advancing technology.

Understanding the key relationships in these supply chains can help you cut costs, boost performance and create more value for customers.

This online course will equip you with a critical appreciation of the way supply chains work, and how to make them work better.

Whether you are a sole trader, in a small to medium-sized organisation, or work for a large firm, you’ll find out how the supply chain is changing in the digital era.

This course is intended for anyone who wants to learn about the effect the digital era is having on supply chains, customers and other stakeholders. No previous experience of studying supply chain management is required, but some basic knowledge of how businesses work would be beneficial.
