Overview

Demand Driven Supply Chain Strategy

Course Description

As supply chain (SC) executives become more instrumental in supporting long-term strategic objectives for their firms, they need to complement traditional SC operational knowledge with a more strategic view of their role in delivering aligned results to the business. This course addresses this requirement by exposing and explaining to supply chain leaders different lenses of strategic planning applied to supply chain management and the specific implications on SC operations. During the course, you will have several opportunities to assess your current supply chain strategy, formulate a new one, discuss keys to implement a supply chain strategy and how to review and align one. Throughout the course, you will play with an extended simulation game of a fictional company and see the impact of supply chain strategic decisions in real time while monitoring your ability to manage uncertainty and deliver financial results for the firm.
