Logistics & Supply Chain Management Workshop in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Program Introduction

The field of Logistics Management & Supply Chain Managment has evolved into a science in its own right. Today, it is crucial to utilize organization resources efficiently and minimize additional non-value adding movement of goods in the supply chain. Expertly managing the cash tied up in the distribution network and the inventory, but at the same time, keeping the customers satisfied to the maximum has become absolutely crucial for today’s Logistics Managers.

 

In this age of globalization, free trade and same-day deliveries caused Supply Chain Management to become more and more critical to organizational success and sustainability. With millions of parts being produced in one continent and shipped to be assembled in other thousands of kilometers away, the performance of a supply chain department can make or break an organization. Supply Chains are the ultimate source of competitive advantage. All the functions of supply chain (Purchasing, Inventory Control, Warehousing and Distribution) must work seamlessly and in cohesion to ensure products are delivered timely, in pristine condition and at minimum cost. This program is designed to equip you with the competencies you need to be a modern Supply Chain professional where quality, price, delivery and service are essential.

 

This seven days program is designed to give you in-depth insight into these concepts and to equip you with necessary best-practice tools and techniques in order to implement them. By understanding the available tools and the hurdles and hindrances in the process and the expected outcomes, you can stay ahead of the competition and be at your peak performance as a Logistics & Supply Chain Manager.

Program Methodology

The methodology used is designed to encourage maximum participation by all delegates. The presenter will suggest ideas and theories to the delegates and then encourage them to test out the ideas by the use of discussion, small group work, exercises and feedback.
