Programme Overview

The supply chain industry is blooming with data-rich opportunities. Gear up your career to the next level in this competitive market place and achieve a competitive edge by optimally managing the supply chain. IIM Kozhikode – Advanced Supply Chain Management and Role of Analytics drives deep understanding and builds a foundation of concepts in regards to Supply Chain Management (SCM).
This programme is divided into three sections that overlap over the course of the programme. It describes the conventional supply chain process (plan, source, production, warehousing and distribution, sales, and sustainability) and the challenges it has faced as a result of black swan events such as Covid-19. In due course, various supply chain analytics tools and techniques (Descriptive analytics, Diagnostic supply chain analytics, Predictive analytics, Prescriptive analytics, and Cognitive analytics) will be introduced. The use of these tools is expected to have an impact on various aspects of the supply chain, such as increased return on investment, better risk management, increased planning accuracy, and increased operational efficiency, allowing organisations to stay lean and better prepared for future uncertainties. Finally, participants will be introduced to topics such as the need for digital supply chain, digital transformations, supply chain sustainability, and so on.

Working executives can now seamlessly upscale their skill levels and get insights on integrating procurement, operations and logistics management. The programme will help you drive operational excellence – analyse various managerial levers and apply them to achieve supply chain excellence. The curriculum equips budding supply chain managers with tools, concepts to manage and put them on the path to operational excellence. Learners can now attend online sessions that would be a combination of assessments, lectures, discussions, simulations, case analysis, and hands-on exercises. Uptick with a strategic approach, learn end-to-end analysis and how to streamline the supply chain – delivering maximum customer value at an affordable price.
