Leading companies throughout the world are looking to formulate integrated supply strategies on both a local geographical and a global basis. This includes strategically sourcing materials and components worldwide and selecting global locations for key supply and distribution centers. The growth in global trade will continue to have a major impact on supply chains and requires firms to practice professional strategic supply management in order to help ensure continuity of supply and to contain and reduce costs.
Strategic sourcing enhances value, ultimately impacting the profitability of an entire organization. In this essential course, you’ll learn how to develop and implement a sourcing strategy that aligns with overall competitive strategy. The course and the associated case studies, activities and discussions provide the context and a framework for making effective sourcing decisions including a comprehensive approach to strategic sourcing.
