Areas of Focus
As supply chain executives become more instrumental in supporting long-term strategic objectives for their firms, they need to complement traditional SC operational knowledge with a more strategic view of their role in delivering aligned results to the business. This course addresses this requirement by exposing and explaining to supply chain leaders different lenses of strategic planning applied to SCM and the specific implications on SC operations.
During the course, attendees will have several opportunities to assess their current supply chain strategy, formulate a new one, discuss keys to implement a supply chain strategy and how to review and align one. For the duration of the course, participants will have the opportunity to play with an extended simulation game of a fictional company and see the impact of supply chain strategic decisions in real time while monitoring their ability to manage uncertainty and deliver financial results for the firm.
This course uses computer simulations. Students should bring their own computers. Limited loaner computers may be available – however, you must contact Meka in SCL (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 7 business days prior to the course start date to request a loaner computer and check availability. Loaner-computers are available on a limited, first-come basis.
Those responsible for determining the future position of supply chain strategy, executing specific supply chain processes that must support specific business initiatives, innovating supply chain strategy to better align with operational goals, understanding the strategic impact of supply chain decisions in the firm and the extended enterprise network and advising clients about their specific supply chain strategic positioning.
