210702 Strategic Supply Chain Management

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



Most organisations treat supply chains as a cost centre that needs to be minimised rather than as a truly strategic asset. Strategic supply chain management brings value to organisations through the effective design and long-term planning of a network of interconnected businesses involved in the provision of products and services to the end-users. This subject introduces learners to the philosophy of supply chain management, with the main focus being to prompt proactive decision-making as they recognise the value of supply chains as a strategic asset. It assists learners to make effective, evidence-based strategic decisions to solve operational issues. Ameliorating efficiency and enhancing existing systems is a skill that students will learn through reflection-based tasks. Students also learn about various pillars of sustainability as they design different structures of supply chains.
