The folks at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Center for Transportation and Logistics (CTL) won't be taking a winter break this year. The center is offering a three-day executive education program on supply chain management from Jan. 3-5.
The course, "Supply Chains Driving Strategic Advantage 2007: Managing Dynamics & Innovating the Future," is designed to provide participants with the cross-functional and global perspective on business needed to leverage supply chains for lasting strategic advantage. Taught by a team of prominent Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) faculty members and researchers, the three-day course will use the center's global research on industry-leading supply chain practices and the future challenges supply chain managers should be prepared to face.
Featured speakers include Prof. Charles Fine and Prof. Tom Malone of the Sloan School of Management; Dr. Larry Lapide, CTL Research Director; and Prof. Yossi Sheffi, Engineering Systems Division and CTL Director.
MIT describes the course as a fast-paced mix of management exercises, case studies, and thought-provoking interactive sessions. It is designed for senior managers interested in learning about leading companies' supply chain management practices; the connection between business success and logistics and supply chain management excellence; and tools, models, and business processes that promote supply chain excellence.
The fee for the program is $2,495. Members of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals receive a 10-percent discount. For information and registration materials, visit http://ctl.mit.edu.
