Description

Blockchain in Supply Chain Management

In the majority of companies, over 70% of the costs and 100% of revenues depend on supply decisions and how the supply chain is managed.

Discover why some of the leading minds in business estimate that the application of blockchain in global supply chain management can result in more than $100 billion in efficiencies, while improving the security and traceability of product supply chains.

In this highly interactive and informative video course by bestselling blockchain instructor George Levy...

You will learn:

  • What blockchain technology is and how it works.

  • Why blockchain is a great fit for Supply Chain Management.

  • How companies are currently using blockchain in their supply chains.

  • Key areas where blockchain technology adds the most value in the supply chain.

  • Leading technology players in blockchain you should be aware of.

  • The different kinds of blockchains available and how to determine which one is right for you

…and much, much more!

With your enrollment, you will get lifetime access to the lessons and a 30 day money back guarantee!

You also will receive upon finishing the course a certificate of completion showing that you've completed this valuable training.

Discover how and why blockchain technology is currently already being used by many leading organizations, including retail giant Walmart, and food and agriculture powerhouse Cargill among many others, to make their supply chains more secure, transparent and efficient.

You will gain valuable insights on how blockchain is being used to combat the more than $1.2 trillion dollars in counterfeited goods worldwide, and how it is helping enable global supply chains to work more closely together as integrated units.

There are no previous requirements to take this course, and you do not have to be a blockchain or a Supply Chain Management professional to take the course. You will also have access to the instructor to answer any questions you may have as you learn the lessons.

As you go through the course, you will have the opportunity to work hands-on with a demo blockchain platform and to follow along in a supply chain focused blockchain demonstration  where we track an asset from creation all the way through the end of the supply chain using blockchain technology.

You will also review and understand real case studies of blockchain being used in various supply chains, and you will learn a valuable seven step process for successfully implementing a blockchain technology project.
