Explore the latest best practices in an increasingly globalized world: outsourcing, delayed differentiation, value-added distribution centres, new IT solutions, supplier relations, international procurement and more.

Supply chain management is seen as a global phenomenon, and rightly so. And the field is growing at a tremendous pace. Talented supply chain managers are in high demand, as more and more companies realize that the strategic reconfiguration of their supply chain is a sure-fire springboard to their ongoing success. In Quebec, the logistics sector is starting to come into its own, but the benefits related to supply chain integration are still largely underappreciated. But if you’re looking for a solution to improving your business performance, this course will give you practical information on how to take a strategic approach to managing your supply chain.

  • Recognize what makes a supply chain efficient and competitive.
  • Learn best practices in logistics management.

Is this for you?

  • Managers

Special features
