Markets are becoming more and more complex and dynamic. Globalisation has led to the evolution and augmentation of supply chains beyond traditional boundaries. The impact of these factors has made supply chain management increasingly challenging and vital to organisational performance. Integrated planning across purchasing, manufacturing and distribution is integral for the execution of shipments to meet customer commitments. Proactive and timely demand forecasting has implications on inventory and vendor management as well as the competitiveness of an organisation.

This 4-day immersive programme on Supply Chain Management emphasises the strategic importance of cross-functional links and provides insights on strengthening these links to establish the company’s competitive advantage.


During the programme, the participants get exposure to contemporary tools and exercises/simulation focused on supply chain management. Topical coverage includes:

  • Building Integrative Partnership Across the Supply Chain

  • Inventory Planning
  • IT Enabled Supply Chain
  • Quick Response Retailing/Manufacturing
  • The Bullwhip Effect
  • Aligning Incentives Across the Supply Chain
  • Managing Procurements
  • Distribution Logistics and Transportation Planning


The programme is designed for supply chain, logistics, and materials managers and directors who wish to broaden and update their skills and knowledge. Also marketing, customer service and manufacturing managers and directors who are seeking supply chain integration or who need to understand the impact of supply chain decisions upon their company's performance.
