Description

Last Update: 24th May, 2020

The term VUCA was coined by the US military a number of years ago and is an acronym for volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. As we can see, the trade disputes and the COVID - 19 pandemic have changed the landscape forever.

This course will give you a good start into explaining the complexity of supply chains, the system thinking required, and the agility needed to manage events in our VUCA world. We cover the basic elements and raise some important questions you need to think about when immersing yourself into the subject.

What makes supply chain management different than business processes and logistics? What issues do we have with technology? How does automation change how supply chains work? All this and more are covered in this course.
