Collaborative supply chain relationships deliver positive supply chain performance outcomes from improved information exchange, this in turn leads to reduction in demand uncertainty and associated costs.
This course is designed to impact all industry sectors and considers the benefits of developing collaborative relationships. For many years supply chain relationships have been based on an inward-outward viewpoint and as such been highly competitive in nature. Lately views have been changing and with reference to how we design supply chains to avoid mismatch.
