Course Overview

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.
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 world view to adopt project management principles and techniques. This course focuses on
integrating project management principles into the supply management process. In this course, you will learn how project management concepts could be applied to enhance supply management. You will also gain an understanding of the tools and techniques used to initiate, execute, manage and control a project.
Possible initiatives for the improvement of supply management through the application of project management concepts will be emphasised.
