The Supply Chain Management field is set for massive disruption, but this won’t change…

…with the forecast of driverless trucks, automation, artificial intelligence, big data and more, the Supply Chain Management field is going to experience massive changes in the next ten to twenty year (or less!).

However, the concepts and principles in effectively managing your supply chain won’t change. Especially, if you know how to apply the principles to a changing technological environment.

Do you face these Supply Chain problems?

  • You perform supply chain management job functions but don’t have any formal training (basically learning on the job)?
  • You don’t have a “system” or proper “checklist” for evaluating potential suppliers?
  • You’re worried about trying to reduce costs yet damaging quality of product/service at the same time?
  • How to you create on-going efficiency and costs savings throughout your supply chain?
  • These are just some of the problems you face on a daily basis…

The Certified Supply Chain Management Professional (CSCMP)™ shows you this and more…

…our goal is to give you an overview and understanding of the supply chain, both conceptually and in practice, and to be able to identify and to take up opportunities for reducing costs and adding value.

Glad I attended…The course was presented professionally and is internationally recognised as a good course.I.F.Contract Manager-Procurement, Overseas AST Co, UAE

Imagine This…

  • Apply a deeper understanding of supply chain concepts and their application

  • Critically evaluate, select and employ appropriate tools and techniques to improve the supply chain, both internally and externally
  • Demonstrate competence in the pro-active management of the supply chain

Why Choose the CSCMP™ Designation?

There are lots of Supply Chain-related designations on the market, so why get CSCMP™ qualified?

  • Two for one value. What do I mean? The CSCMP training is designed to be aligned with other well-known supply chain qualifications and international standards on the market so by taking the CSMP certification you not only gain the CSCMP certification, but you’ll also be equipped to take other Supply Chain-related qualifications without having to take additional preparation courses. We adopt a proactive, participative and delegate-centred approach with emphasis on the practical application of the tools, techniques and templates. The creation of Action Plans by the participants has always been the experiential dimension to all our courses. We appreciate the need to ensure the learning is embedded into the fabric of the organisation and we use context – based case studies and other tasks to achieve this.
  • Belief in on-going development. Other designations only require to take a one-off course and test and you are “certified” forever without any on-going professional development requirements. While that seems great on the surface, we believe in taking the Supply Chain Management profession more seriously. We believe in a requirement to continuously keep up-to-date and adding skills to your development in order to be taken seriously as a professional. It’s why we provide all of this as part of your on-going Membership.
  • We’re not the cheapest certified training provider but we’re not the most expensive either. Let me ask you this question: “Would you rather be seen as having the lowest cost designation/certification in the industry? Or would you rather invest just a little bit more to be seen as taking your profession more seriously?” Do you think that bump in your career and income would give you the better return?
