When organizations have a lean team, or have less than five members to train, ISCM periodically offers a range of training programs in a wide range of supply chain topics. These programs have the same rigor as our in-company programs; follow the same case based pedagogy.
Demand Planning & Forecasting
Continuous improvement in demand planning and forecasting is a must for companies using supply chain as a source of competitive advantage. This two day master class will look at the four pillars of demand planning, forecasting methods, measuring error and bias, understanding variability and how it affects the forecast.
Supply Chain Management
The ISCM Supply Chain Management Program will help participants explore the critical issues and challenges in a globalized supply chain. It is useful to managers needing a big picture refresher. Participants will gain an insight into supply chain and logistics operations, current issues, industry best practices, strategic challenges, business frameworks, strategy, planning and disruptive technologies impacting supply chains
Integrated Business Planning
The supply chain is a complex system driven by geography, product proliferation and multiple channels. Sensing demand and arriving at a consensus on the demand numbers are still a challenge to most firms. Firms are also confused about the demand planning process. They are unclear on how to move forward. This masterclass retreat explores the four pillars of demand planning, and executive S&OP. It then introduces the concept of Integrated Business Planning, and prepares a roadmap for firms to embark on a robust IBP process.
Supply Chain Analytics
As supply chain footprint expands, the complexities of decision making increase. Analytical modeling techniques become core to decision making. From network design, forecasting demand, procurement, managing inventories, production planning, to transportation, analytical tools can help firms optimize their operations. Data is no longer a constraint for analytics. Internal and external data sources are increasing exponentially. This program is aimed at providing a framework for applications of analytics in supply chain management, integrating technology, algorithms and processes.
