Are you tired of explaining what a supply chain is to co-workers? Would your job be easier if colleagues in other parts of the company understood how their decisions affect distribution, logistics, and order fulfillment? If so, you might want to tell them about "Customer-Focused Supply Chain Management," a new course offered by APICS: The Association for Operations Management.
The one-day program is geared toward professionals who support the supply chain but do not work directly in the field. The aim is to help people involved in sales, marketing, finance, operations, and other areas understand how their job functions complement and enhance global supply chain management, say APICS officials.
"Customer-Focused Supply Chain Management" will be offered through local APICS affiliates, including APICS chapters, international associates, and authorized education providers. For more information, visit www.apics.org/cfscm.
