Areas of Focus
LeanCor is extending the Lean Supply Chain Certificate program to the new Georgia Tech Panama Logistics Innovation & Research Center
(GTPLIRC) starting this December. GTPLIRC is the latest addition to the
Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute's (SCL) logistics innovation network of centers that focus on improving country-level logistics performance and increasing trade competitiveness.
"Due to the successful validation we've experienced with the Lean
Supply Chain Certificate Program, we believe this lean training will be a great resource aligned with the center's strategic goals," said Carole Bennett, Director of Program Development and Marketing at the Georgia
Tech SCL. "Building Lean Supply Chain professionals in Panama will increase its logistics performance, enabling Panama to become the trade hub for the Americas."
The program will follow the same format as the existing three-day Lean Supply Chain Certificate Program held in Atlanta, GA over three-month periods. Courses include:
"LeanCor is very proud of their relationship with the Georgia Tech Supply Chain and Logistics institute. In addition we are equally proud that President Martinelli of Panama and his team see the LeanCor-GA Tech
partnership offering as a way to train and prepare Panamanians for this global shift," said Robert Martichenko, CEO of LeanCor, LLC. "We are
excited to see Panama take the lead of other major global logistics hubs."
