In this course, we explore the scope, planning, and application of supply chain management and identify the major components of technologies that lead to innovation.

Course 2- Supply Chain Management II

Building on concepts from the Supply Chain Management I course, we discuss how to determine and orchestrate supply chain processes and integrate and manage supply chain design. We also apply supply chain management principles to the service sector and examine strategic performance measurements.
