Measuring and Managing Performance in Supply Chain and Logistics Operations

Course Description

Develop effective supply chain performance measurement processes to drive alignment across the corporation. Corporations often struggle with a lack of alignment between financial goals and operational metrics. Additionally, today’s information technology often overwhelms management with data and metrics. In this 3-day course you will learn how to develop metrics that synchronize supply chain and logistics metrics with key company financial metrics and goals. Through coursework and hands-on exercises, students learn to tailor metrics and measurement processes to focus on the most important aspects of the operations and overall corporate goals. As part of the course, performance dashboards from participating student companies and best-in-class organizations will be critiqued. The methods learned in the course are intended to be immediately put to use in the corporate environment.
