Project Management for Supply Chain Professionals


Supply Management is the process of managing relationships, information, and materials flows across organisational boundaries to deliver enhanced customer service and economic value. Supply manager’s aim towards synchronizing and amalgamating these flows through the implementation of a specific ordering of work activities across time and place, with a beginning, an end, clearly identified inputs and outputs, as well as a structure for action.
