About the course
Deliver business value through supply management which goes beyond traditional cost savings and driving down supplier prices.
To identify value-adding opportunities, supply chain leaders need to systematically approach the full cycle of projects from business need to a sustainable, performing supply solution. This blended program will develop your supply chain management (SCM) leadership capability to design and deliver strategic supply solutions. You will explore how to: identify key stakeholder needs, conduct market intelligence research, navigate diverse datasets and financial levers that drive desired outcomes, manage contract negotiations and develop core relationships within your organization and external partnerships. Over three months, you will apply this new knowledge to a real project within your business with the support and expertise of Haskayne faculty, industry practitioners, and peer SCM leaders. In addition, you will practice negotiation strategies to enhance your SCM capabilities required to deliver real value back to your organization and key stakeholders.
