Essential Strategies and Skills Certificate

The digital datasphere is growing annually at an exponential rate. Organizations are flooded with more and more data that has little to no meaning to their current business processes. However, when deciphered correctly, data can inform decisions and be a powerful tool for supply management professionals. In this certificate program you will learn to analyze key information to make strategic decisions in areas such as regions to source from, modeling to impact target costs and stakeholder engagement to deliver cohesive solutions. Looking at patterns in overall spends, inventories, markets and supplier financial health will allow supply management professionals to establish successful strategies for both bottom line costs and top line revenues.


Earning a certificate is not the same as becoming a certified supply management professional. To learn more about the differences between certificates and certification, visit our certificates page.
