6 Facts That Nobody Told You About Supply Chain Management.

  • Supply Chain Management: Be Global by Coursera,

Free Online Courses in Supply Chain Management:

There are many questions about whether the free courses provided by Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) platforms are effective in landing a job in supply chain, or getting promotion in the current job in supply chain.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) are good to understand the basics of supply chain, or even to upgrade your knowledge base in supply chain. But, like all other courses, they cannot guarantee landing a suitable job or promotion. At best they can strongly support your candidature for the job or promotion.

For freshers, these courses will give them virtual exposure into the modern supply chain environment and provide them with the lay of the land about to advanced standards that exist inside the industry.

Before You Invest In A Course, Assess The Credibility Of The Course Provider

The best way to judge the credibility and capability of the course provider is to ask their alumni critical questions about the progress they have been able to achieve as a direct result of what they learned in the course, or by holding the certificate awarded by the course.

If the course fails this litmus test then all other discussion about it is merely window dressing.

You Learn From Your Fellow Students Too

While assessing this progress also try and assess the quality of participants in the course, because you learn almost as much from the other participants questions and observations as you learn from the formal course content.

There are many questions about whether the free courses provided by Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) platforms are effective in landing a job in supply chain, or getting promotion in the current job in supply chain.

A good course would also structure a number of breakout sessions and group activities to facilitate learning, interaction and cross seeding of ideas.

OUTPERFORM OUTSOURCE OUTPROFIT

The trend of outsourcing continues to grow unabated with the whole gamut of services, from simple to mission-critical tasks. There is not a single company on earth that does not outsource anything. It is not just about cost arbitrage, it is also a finer expression of division of labour at the organisational level. Like all leverage, outsourcing is a double-edged sword too. On one hand, it allows you to do more, faster. On the other hand, if it goes bad, it can easily kill your business. If you do not believe that is possible – you can google the Fox Meyer saga from the 90s and see for yourself.

It is generally accepted that environmental consciousness is now changing to environmental proactiveness as organizations are discovering that it makes good commercial sense.

Boards are asking the management to review their policies related to environmental norms, not only to bolster their corporate social responsibility aims, but also because consumers are asking for greener supply chains
