CPD Course: Managing Remote Teams

Supply Chain Management for Finance Professionals

Supply chains have the potential to make or break a company: just ask Boeing. When it launched its Dreamliner aircraft in 2007, it committed to setting record production times, but within months that promise was destroyed. Tiny glitches held up the first stage of construction, including tiny supply chain issues, such as running out of fasteners meaning that Boeing had to purchase them from a high street department store. These small delays built up to a revised production schedule amounting to years! 

That’s how important supply chains are. This course is designed for finance staff to gain an understanding of this vital area of the business so you can understand and support it from a financial perspective.

Provides 8 hours of CPD

  • The various stages and activities in a supply chain so you can effectively tailor the financial insights, advice and support you provide to those involved 
  • How your organisation creates value through its supply chain so that you can use your financial expertise to improve these processes and maximise profit  
  • The critical importance of quality and efficiency in the supply chain and why it’s vital that you can provide useful insights to support improvements in these areas
  • An array of different techniques that can be used to improve the quality and efficiency of production and, therefore, organisational performance

To ensure you have fully grasped all these concepts, we’ve also provided you with 20 practice questions for you to complete to solidify your understanding of supply chain management.

By correctly answering the accompanying test questions, you can earn a certificate of completion for your completed CPD hours.
