Welcome To Procurement & Supply Chain Webinar
The supply chain industry is not the same as it used to be a decade ago. With new technological advancements like 3D, autonomous vehicles, IoT, big data analytics, and omnichannel retailing taking over, it has undergone a massive change. And advanced level practices mean the requirement for an advanced/upskilled workforce. Further innovations will continue to influence the supply chain of the future.

Industry reports suggest that for every six job openings, there is only one qualified worker available, which is indicative of the big void in the market for skilled professionals. With new smart products dominating the SCM market, supply chain leaders must be agile and have sound knowledge of risk management. If you are passionate about your supply chain career, the first thing is to identify your strengths and weaknesses and work on them accordingly. As supply chains keep transforming, you must be efficient enough to adapt yourself to the evolving trends, and for that, you must take the route to an all-encompassing comprehensive journey that will impart you with a holistic leadership style by enhancing your knowledge and refining your technological skills.

Join us at this APICS expert-led webinar to gain real-life career insights that will help you prepare better for managing the future supply chains.
Webinar Highlights:

  • Strategies to expand your supply chain skills
  • Advanced practices in supply chain
  • Transformation in SCM
