SCProTM Fundamentals Certification: Supply Chain Management Principles

The Supply Chain Management Principles certification track is a great place to start and is a ‘launch pad’ to begin your supply chain educational and certification process. It provides a high-level overview of each of the functions in a supply chain. After you complete this track, you will have a broad appreciation for how each of the individual supply chain functions operate and how they are ‘linked’ in a chain to enable organizations to plan and execute product and service delivery to achieve customer satisfaction. Since all of the remaining seven certification tracks are introduced at a high level in Principles, this might spark your interest, enthusiasm, and choice for your next track enrollment.

Enroll in the Supply Chain Management Principles to:
  • Discuss the functions in a supply chain
  • Define SCM
  • Explain how supply chains must be integral to an organization’s strategic goals
