Course Overview

Supply Management manages relationships, information, and materials flows across organisational boundaries to deliver enhanced customer service and economic value. Supply managers aim towards synchronising 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.
 
Project Management is also a structured process of managing workflow in a specific order across time and place. The close similarities between these two processes provide a firm foundation to expand the supply manager's worldview to adopt project management principles and techniques. This course focuses on integrating project management principles into the supply management process.
