Globalisation, greater product and service variety, and innovations in IT, manufacturing and delivery models have led to several transformations in the management of supply networks. Supply networks are now more complex, posing multifaceted challenges to efficiency. With greater digitisation, however, organisations’ ability to capture data in real-time and analyse supply chain operations closely has drastically improved – yet, with this digitisation, it is also worth noting that managers who go digital must solve data security, reliability, and information leakage issues. Essentially, effectively managing supply chains is a complex task. This programme aims to equip professionals with the ability to navigate these complexities, with ease.

Digitisation of supply chains is inevitable and will significantly transform supply chains of the future – be it automobile manufacturing or online retailing. In this course, we focus on the “digital supply chain,” the critical role of information, and the use of such information technologies. Our goal is to understand how digitisation and IT influence the performance of a firm and its supply chain. The key will be to understand the link between supply chain structures, IT (digitisation), and logistical capabilities in a firm or supply chain.


  • Digitisation and supply chain strategy
  • Valuing capacity as a real option
  • Assortment/Inventory planning models and demand forecasting in a digital world
  • The challenges of matching supply and demand in the e-com world
  • Last mile delivery challenges and using digital information to optimise delivery
  • How to value information and its role in mitigating the bullwhip effect in supply chains
  • Digital technologies, security, and information

Who should attend

Executives with at least 5 years of experience working with supply chain networks, from any industry that is digitising rapidly.
