Introduction

A changing business landscape heavily influenced by technological growth and globalisation means that traditional logistics as well as supply chain management systems and processes are now outdated.

In order to stand out as a Supply Chain Manager, you not only need to be an exceptional general manager, but also a specialist in logistics management, operations, manufacturing and quality assurance.

Due to those diverse requirements, the Department of Labour in South Africa has even classified supply chain management as a scarce skill - a gap that this 11-week course will empower you to fill.
