The University of Tennessee has announced its schedule of logistics-related professional courses for the first half of 2006, and the roster includes two brand new programs: "Making Performance-based Logistics Real—The Basics and Beyond" and "Getting Global Sourcing Right."
The first of the new programs, the performance-based logistics course, is designed for logistics managers working with their Defense Department counterparts under performance-based logistics contracts. The second new class, the week-long global sourcing program, is intended for managers and staff from supply chain, purchasing, operations, sourcing process improvement, and other departments interested in learning more about best practices in planning and executing a global sourcing strategy.
Unless otherwise noted, the main contact for information on the classes listed below is Bric Wheeler, (865) 974-8759, email@example.com.
