Enhance your organisation's Supply Chain by managing and understanding the increasing volatile and complex environment with logistics and competitive strategies.
Supply chain management is becoming increasingly important for organisations and, at the same time, more and more challenging for the individuals responsible. Globalisation is leading to lengthening supply chains, often associated with greater vulnerability to interruptions and delays.
This programme led by award winning faculty Professor Richard Wilding OBE and Professor Martin Christopher delivers you the latest thinking in supply chain management, support with the issues that occur in the current dynamic environment and will increase your confidence and ability to manage complex issues within your organisation.
Taking advantage of Cranfield’s proud research led heritage in this area, the Supply Chain Management programme is the only course of its type in the UK and Europe that gives you the very latest knowledge, tools, methods, strategies and solutions to manage your supply chain in the Industry 4.0 Digital era.
Of critical importance, the programme enables you to apply the latest thinking in Supply Chain essentials in order to leverage the new technologies thrusted upon the Supply Chain executive.
Running for the past 20 years, the Supply Chain Management Programme is a five-day residential event at Cranfield School of Management.
Recognised for his outstanding contribution to logistics and supply chain management, the Programme is led by Professor Richard Wilding OBE. Richard will be supported by an award winning faculty who provide internationally recognised supply chain research that guides you through the key elements of supply chain leadership including planning, sourcing, making, delivering and solving challenges that occur across supply chains.
The programme is delivered through talks and facilitated sessions from our experts. You will take part in supply chain simulations that give you the opportunity to practice and rehearse your responses and make decisions based on knowledge gained from the programme.
