It's hard enough to manage a supply chain in normal times (if such times can be said to exist). It's all the harder at times like these when the boundaries of function, organization, and geography are a-tumbling down. That's the challenge addressed by the 2008 Global Supply Chain Management Program, which takes place March 3-7 in Atlanta.
Jointly offered by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals and the Georgia Institute of Technology's Supply Chain & Logistics Institute, the program focuses on two critically important subjects: integrated supply chains and global operations. Through seminars taught by wellknown experts, participants will learn about planning, designing, and operating highly effective, integrated supply chains in the context of global operations.
Topics include strategic supply chain concepts; increasing shareholder value through supply chain management; and supply chain issues in Asia, India, Europe, and Latin America.
Participants also will get hands-on experience through a case study and an interactive supply chain game. For more information, go to www.dlpe.gatech.edu/scl/sc.
