To keep pace with the continuous moves toward outsourcing of operations and the advancement of technology, companies need to focus on selecting the right suppliers and partnerships to provide the most value to their customers and to remain profitable. This course provides a deeper understanding of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) areas of project integration and procurement, as applied to the supply-chain vendor-selection and management process. You will gain the knowledge, skills, and tools to ensure that you are selecting the right supply-chain partners based on your business goals. In addition, you will learn about alternative techniques for supplier selection, including applied quantitative decision-making techniques.
This course is designed for those responsible for managing projects in the supply chain and logistics environment as well as those interested in learning about industry frameworks, best practices, and terminology in project management as well as supply chain management. This course is also appropriate for individuals who are engaged in procurement and vendor selection and management functions.
