About Programme

Logistics and supply chain management today represent a great challenge for a country with the size and complexity of India. Add to that intense competition and shrinking product lifecycles, and supply chain management becomes an even more important source of competitive advantage. But where there is a great challenge, there is also a great opportunity.

Businesses are waking up to this opportunity to enhance forecasting and order fulfilment with extremely rapid timelines. This programme will show you how to make good on this opportunity by reducing exposure not only within their own organisation, but also for their suppliers and downstream partners. You will gain a holistic view of supply chain analytics with the goal of reducing costs and improving resilience.
