"That's right you're not from Texas—but Texas wants you anyway," goes the chorus of Lyle Lovett's catchy '90s song. In that spirit, the University of North Texas's Center for Logistics Education and Research has opened up registration for its logistics short courses to practitioners nationwide—even those who don't own a 10-gallon hat. These one- and two-day courses focus on the study and practice of logistics and supply chain management not only in Texas but also nationally and globally.
Coming up later this month is the "Logistics Management" seminar, which will be held Aug. 30-31 in Denton, Texas. The seminar offers an overview of the key principles underlying effective logistics performance. Topics include forecasting, inventory management, project management, and metrics. The cost of the seminar is $695; J.R. Ewing attire is optional.
Along with the "Logistics Management" seminar, the center offers five other courses: "Transportation Management," "Logistics and Supply Chain Management," "Supply Chain Analytics," "Financial Management for Logistics Managers," and "Using Logistics to Drive Bottom-Line Performance."
