A big part of any supply chain professional's job is making sure that supply matches up as closely as possible with demand. Two executive education programs from the University of Tennessee are designed to help professionals make that perfect match.
The first program, "Supply Chain Management Strategy," provides a strategic overview of supply chain challenges and opportunities, logistics service quality, negotiation strategies, globalization, and relationship management. It will be offered Feb. 18-20 and Sept. 15-17, 2008.
The second, "Demand Management in the Supply Chain," explains how the demand side of an enterprise's value chain (sales, marketing, downstream channel partners) interfaces with its supply side (operations, logistics, purchasing, upstream supply partners). It is scheduled for Feb. 20-22 and Sept. 17-19, 2008.
Participants may take either of these courses on a stand-alone basis or as part of the school's Integrated Supply Chain Management Certification Program, which includes four other two and a half day classes. Courses are held on the University of Tennessee's Knoxville campus. For more information, visit http://supplychain.utk.edu.
