According to Bloomberg News, by mid-October 2021, executives at S&P 500 companies mentioned the phrase “supply chain” about 3,000 times on investor calls. That’s a tally that easily sailed past last year’s then-record figure, and if you’re in transportation & logistics, procurement, trade & compliance, or any supply chain function, you’ve personally been in on these conversations.  And you recognize that the supply chain will continue to stay in the headlights for months or years to come.

If you’re looking to increase your contribution in managing your company’s supply chain – and experience the career growth opportunities that follow – then this course is for you.

Through real-world examples, case studies, and interactive discussion, you will expand your awareness of strategies that improve supply chain predictability and reliability, reduce risk and spend, and how to operate productively in an environment of unpredictability and variability.
