OUR EIGHT MODULES
What exactly does end-to-end mean?
Basically, any value chain / supply chain starts with the customer and ends with the customer. And so, the first module of our programme is Customer Management. The key outcome of this module is to learn to collaborate with stakeholders to service customers.
As the name implies, the Supply Chain Solutioning module dives into the supply chain itself, helping learners analyse current operating models against changing customer needs, leading to improved inventory management, delivery times and costs.
Once learners understand the overarching needs of the customer and the supply chain, it is time to look at the business through Strategy Planning. Here, learners will develop resource allocation plans and implement strategies in support of supply chain efficiencies.
With that, learners are in a better position to undertake a more in-depth understanding of the customer through Logistics Solution Design Thinking, developing bite-sized implementable solutions to meet customers needs.
This naturally leads to the fifth module, Innovation Management, where learners will apply tried and tested skills like cost-benefit analysis, valuation techniques and industry knowledge to implement innovations that will generate sustainable value for the business.
When all the plans are in place, the company would start to look at their procurement and materials management processes. The Material Flow Modelling module will look at the nuts-and-bolts of moving materials from one point to another in a smooth and cost-effective manner. This is, after all, a critical supply chain function.
With the planning, development and flow of goods in place, the learner will then look to Business Development. This ties in to the design thinking module to help bring the solutions to market, iterating the value proposition between the product and the customer. Learners will specifically learn to use the business model canvas expertly.
Finally, to top it all off, learners will learn to grapple with information and how to present this information to stakeholders for decision. The Data Analysis module is the starting block for more in-depth understanding of data analytics.
