Pre-Post course for LOG 5003P: Systems Operations and Strategic Interactions in Supply Chains

Course Description

Despite having common goals, often the lack of cooperation and coordination between organizations or stakeholders active in public health and humanitarian relief lead to inefficiencies. A systems view is needed to ensure appropriate use of scarce resources to meet the multiple, and often conflicting, short- and long-term goals from multiple constituents. This course will focus on conceptual and modeling skills to understand and effectively manage healthcare delivery and humanitarian response from a systems perspective. Models will address system characteristics (e.g. demand dependencies) that drive system dynamics and policies to regulate performance. Course topics include methods for improving coordination and collaboration, addressing demand dependencies, and reliably measuring and evaluating system performance.
