ISSA’s Cleaning Management Institute (CMI) has collaborated with Marquette University (MU) to develop an online training course that introduces the seven critical areas of supply chain management.
“Supply chains – not companies – compete in today’s economy,” said Marko Bastl, assistant professor of supply chain management at Marquette University’s College of Business Administration in the press release. “How we manage the supply chain can become a competitive advantage. Companies need to understand the role that internal functions such as logistics and purchasing play in gaining a competitive edge.”
According to Bastl, you will gain “insights into how we can take an integrated view of the various supply chain-related functions – such as customer service, logistics and distribution, purchasing, and supply chain planning – and in doing so maximize our levels of customer service.”
“People in a number of different roles will get a lot of insight from this program,” added Brant Insero, director of education, training, and certification for ISSA. “Buyers in purchasing departments, production planners, and logistics analysts, in particular, are good candidates. Also, middle managers who are perhaps working in a narrow supply-chain-management area would benefit from better understanding their role in the broader context.”
