Supply Chain Management consists of all parties directly or indirectly involved in the supply of items to a customer. If poorly managed problems such as rising costs, poor relationships and ultimately loss of profits can occur. However we can teach you the techniques to avoid this.

In many organisations the supporting supply chain is not sufficiently aligned to the company’s strategic goals and objectives to create success. We have created the Pathway to Supply Chain Management specifically to address this shortfall. It has been designed to give business owners the skills to develop supply chain strategies that will make strategic goals attainable.

  • No documented or generally understood supply chain strategy
  • Supplier lead times are increasing
  • Having to hold inventory due to unreliable suppliers
  • High levels of SLOB (SLow moving OBsolete) stock
  • Excessive stock outs
  • Poor forecast accuracy—or no forecasting at all

…then we can help you.
