Strategic supply chain management is the backbone of any contemporary organisation and a key to unlocking business innovation and competitiveness. These days, it’s the quality of supply chain management – adding value at every touch point, by reducing variability and uncertainty – that can set a business apart from its competitors.
With new technologies, information systems and management approaches disrupting traditional supply chain processes, highly qualified supply chain professionals are more in demand than ever.
