• Supply chain course to bring attention the need for better inventory management in the Philippines

    6 October 2016

    There will be a masterclass focused on supply chain entitled Tactical Demand, Supply & Inventory Management which will be held on 23-25 November 2016 in Makati, Philippines. The course will be targeting inventory management practitioners seeking to broaden their scope and knowledge on the field.

    The economic growth that the Philippines is currently experiencing has created a need for a better and advanced approach when dealing with supply and demand. Traditional supply chain practices can no longer sustain the rapid changes in the market. To remain on the radar of competition, companies need to look for ways they can optimize demand, supply and inventory management in order to be more equipped when planning and anticipating changes in the business landscape.

    With this in mind, the 3-day masterclass is designed to equip professionals with best practices and in-depth knowledge to cope and prosper in issues that can hinder their business operations. By the end of the course, delegates will gain an appreciation and more knowledge of a range of better practices, concepts and techniques on how to master the tools needed to effectively manage global supply chain activity, maximize ROI on the systems and technologies within their organisations, understand the potential cost versus the true cost of the warehouse operation, and more.
