Areas of Focus
As supply chain executives become more instrumental in supporting long-term strategic objectives, they need to complement traditional supply chain operational knowledge with a more strategic view of their role in delivering aligned results to the business. Learn about different lenses of strategic planning applied to supply chain management and the specific implications on supply chain operations.

For the duration of the course, participants will have the opportunity to work 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.
