Art Van Bodegraven and Ken Ackerman style themselves as a couple of straight-talking, old school supply chain veterans. So when they team up to teach the "Fundamentals of Supply Chain Management" course for the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), they're not likely to get bogged down in vague generalizations or pie-in-the-sky theories. Instead, the two promise real solutions to real problems.
In their course, the industry veterans will talk about why transportation remains the largest and most critical link in many supply chains, the vital role of warehousing in the supply chain, how supply chains affect procurement, and key tactics for justifying the cost of a supply chain project. The course will take place in Lombard, Ill., home of CSCMP, Nov. 13-14. For more information or to register, visit http://cscmp.org/Events/Fundamentals/index.asp.
