Brief Description
There is constant pressure on managers to improve the efficiency of their supply chains, allowing materials to move quickly and at low cost. This pressure has encouraged a stream of new initiatives and methods. But there is a growing realization that these new methods also bring unforeseen problems. 
 
 Every organisation, whether it manufactures goods or provides services, needs a reliable flow of materials. Supply chain risk management is a particularly relevant discipline with an end-goal in mind, which is to meet and satisfy customer demands. The methods and risk management strategies your business adopts for everything from procurement of goods to control of inventory will have a profound impact on costs, customer service, and your company’s overall profitability.
 
This 8-week online course will empower you with the necessary skills and competencies that will enable you to identify, analyse and respond to risks in your organisation and supply chain. The focus in this course will be on teaching you some of the fundamental concepts, processes, principles and techniques in supply chain risk management to create a resilient supply chain and ensure business continuity.
