Planning- Essential Strategies/Skills Certificate

A common problem supply management professionals face is not being able to provide accurate forecasts to suppliers. This is a challenge throughout the supply chain based on uncertain customer demands of goods and services. This certificate program will provide knowledge and skills to coordinate sales forecasts, demand plans, and capacity planning to arrive at a consensus plan. The Sales and Operations Planning process also incorporates financial plans and budgets to enable executive-level trade-offs in response to changes in market demand, supplier capabilities, and competition. Driving more sophisticated planning processes will ensure the entire supply chain is optimized to achieve sound bottom line costs and meet revenue objectives. The course provides access for 60 days from the date of the purchase.

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.
