Description

The course Understanding Supply Chain Ecosystems describes how a system of organizations, people, activities, information, and resources are involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer.

The course describes how modern supply chains have evolved into complex international networks, which can no longer be adequately described using the linear concept of a ‘chain’. You will learn how modern supply chain ecosystems now comprise of a network of companies, countries and their governments, social and political organisations, natural, industrial (clusters), financial and human resources, delivery infrastructure including logistics and IT, and knowledge of the industrial environment. You will see how within these ecosystems, each configuration is unique to the particular enterprise that owns that supply chain.

This course will be of great interest to all professionals who work in the areas of operations management, logistics, procurement and information technology, and to all learners who are interested in developing a career in the area of supply chain management.
