Supply Chain Management Program
Who Should Attend
The seminar is designed specifically for executives who are striving to achieve cross-functional integration within their organization and with key customers and suppliers.
The Supply Chain Management Program seminar will focuses on how to implement The Global Supply Chain Forum framework. We also offer customized programs that specifically meet your organization's needs. The program teaches the implementation of the eight essential business processes that comprise the GSCF Supply Chain Management framework. These processes must be implemented cross-functionally and with key customers and suppliers in order to create the maximum value for customers, shareholders and other stakeholders. It also includes a session on the GSCF partnership model that is being used by major corporations to structure relationships with key customers and suppliers.

Each process is managed by a cross-functional team, including representatives from finance, marketing, logistics, production, purchasing, research and development, and sales.
