Developing a Supply Chain Mindset
This module demonstrates how supply chain managers must have a strong understanding of the end-to-end supply chain, possess the ability to identify opportunities for improvement, deliver strong operational results, build collaborative relationships with business partners, and develop their team's capabilities to enable the supply chain to support system growth.
Collaborating with Business Partners
This module explains that one of the key principles of the end-to-end Supply Chain is that managers cannot achieve their goals alone.  To build a competitive and growth enabled supply chain, you will need to develop relationships with suppliers, customers, logistics service providers, and manufacturing service providers.  The key to developing these critical relationships is the ability to understand your partners' business models, and seek ways to collaborate and achieve a “win-win” for both parties.
Product Portfolio Management
This module examines processes that will help manage product portfolio lifecycles and assess the strategic fit, whether produced or sourced.
Demand Management
This module discusses the demand management processes needed to effectively determine and support customer demand.     Successful managers must become customer-centric and demand-driven, appreciate the objective of good planning; take a deeper drive on forecasting and planning, and take action to put the demand management frameworks in place.
Sustainable Procurement
This module illustrates the importance of solid procurement strategy and provides a clear understanding of how Global Sustainable Procurement (GSP) supports the growth strategy, and how managers can take advantage of the support available to help control costs and build better relationships with other resources and external business partners.
Inventory Management
This module explains how inventory is an asset that is equivalent to cash. Excessive inventory is a burden on the operation’s working capital.  If it sits too long, it can result in inventory write-offs.  Too little inventory can result in out-of-stocks and not fulfilling customer service requirements.  Inventory management is the set of processes that optimize the inventory levels to meet the customer service demands.
Quality & Safety
This module demonstrates methods for creating a culture that emphasizes quality and safety and how this culture protects a brand, maintains consumer trust, and contributes to sound financial results.  With practice, workplace safety can be improved with little or no investment and forward-thinking safety methods.
Sustainability
This module includes ideas and practices for using resources efficiently and discusses steps to take in local work environments to achieve sustainability goals.  Learn from examples of audits and assessments you can perform in your workplace that could help to improve sustainability.
Supply Chain Risk Management
This module explains to managers about tools used to identify and analyze risks, as well as the tools for incident resolution, and assess the impact of risk events
Supply Chain Segmentation
This module explains that to maximize profitability, managers must understand how segmentation works in their markets, then design their supply chain to fit the segments.  Effective segmentation represents a critical transformation for future competitive success.
Time & Resource Management
This module illustrates the value of supply chain metrics in helping managers to understand their performance.    Learn methods to identify gaps to drive continuous improvement, including  performance indicators, staffing optimization, and productivity optimization.
