Get a global view of supply chain management

If your supply chain is global, then your executive education course should be as well. INSEAD is an international graduate business school with campuses in France, Singapore, and Abu Dhabi. Its five-day Supply Chain Management Program, held in Singapore, will address the three principles that underpin supply chain success: value, alignment, and sustainability. The program will help you identify which activities create value for your customers, which technology and incentives can be used to align processes, and which risks could threaten the sustainability of your supply chain.

Adapt to changing conditions

Best-in-class companies are always looking ahead and continuously adapting their supply chains to match changing market conditions. In the “Achieving Supply Chain Transformation” executive education course, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the critical elements of adaptive supply chain management through a business model called pico. This business model involves optimizing three metrics simultaneously: predictability and response time, cash-to-cash cycle time, and revenue and margin contribution.

Designed by Penn State’s Executive Program and the Smeal College of Business Center for Supply Chain Research, this course can be taken toward one of the university’s three professional certificates in supply chain management. “Achieving Supply Chain Transformation” is cosponsored by CSCMP.
