Why Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management is more important than ever before and many businesses are seeking skilled experts to onboard. Supply chains have faced many challenges due to COVID-19 and organisations have had to adapt accordingly.

Companies want to ensure their supply chains are more resilient against future threats so they are seeking supply chain experts who can spot these vulnerabilities and plan accordingly. This means there are ample opportunities for those interested in the field, who have the dedication to acquire knowledge and come up with innovative solutions.

This course will:

  • Provide you with an expansive knowledge of supply chain management and procurement.
  • Teach you how to identify and select appropriate procurement and supply chain strategies.
  • Teach you how to align procurement strategy with business strategy with an organisation.
  • Teach you how the SCM concept has profoundly introduced traditional purchasing management approaches and philosophies.

The global supply chain management market is predicted to reach US$ 62.6 billion by the end of 2031, according to Future Market Insights (FMI). The market is expected to increase due to rising demand for supply chain management (SCM) solutions among small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and major corporations.
