PT206 - Managing Supply Chains

Course Overview

This programme is an excellent opportunity to provide delegates with the practical skills required to manage a broad range of supplier activities.

Delegates will leave the programme with the capability to assess the approaches taken by suppliers, support the selection of suppliers, measure supplier performance, manage supply chain risks and encourage suppliers to take a process approach to management in order to drive improvement.

The GBS Managing Supply Chains programme has been designed to equip managers and team leaders with the practical skills, tools, and structured techniques to manage the supply chain process effectively.

Practitioner level courses are designed specifically for professionals that are currently practicing quality and are in, or aspire to middle management. These certified courses will provide professionals with the practical skills to apply in their role and organisation.

Completion of two Practitioner level courses, together with demonstrable work experience, can lead to the gold standard Chartered Quality Professional (CQP) status, which is recognised alongside other roles with Chartered status.

Please note, this course can be delivered as virtual instructor led training (VILT), face to face, or it can be delivered with a blend of both formats. We will customise the content and duration in line with your learning and development requirements.
