The UK has recently experienced increased business uncertainty, rising inflation, and supply chain issues across a variety of materials and products arising from worldwide shortages.

This short course will help micro and small enterprises, as well as mid to senior-level managers of large enterprises, to manage complexity in the supply chain and be better prepared for uncertainty. It will also help managers to incorporate sustainability into the supply chain and to build a more resilient enterprise that can successfully navigate these testing times. 

Learning Outcomes

After completing the course, students will be able to:

• Comprehend complexity and uncertainty in the global supply chain,

• Evaluate different strategies to handle complexity

• Apply tools and techniques to identify, assess and manage risk

• Develop strategies to incorporate sustainability and build resilient enterprises.

Entry requirements

Open to any business owner or manager in small, medium or large enterprises who are responsible for managing the supply chain of their operations.

How you'll be taught
