BCI Supply Chain Resilience - Online Course

Introduction

This tutor-led online course is about understanding supply chains, how they are managed and how to add resilience measures to them, and therefore, the business. It is about how to engage with those responsible for procurement and their teams to embed business continuity and resilience into the business supply chain. In the current climate of financial austerity, volatile markets and globalisation, supply chains oare often under complex and global pressure. Suppliers may be located in areas of the world that suffer considerable threats from severe weather systems and many logistical problems. Top Management often has a Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) whose mission is to add value to the business as part of the business plan. On this course you will learn how to offer the procurement team the comfort of knowing that the resilience measures you are proposing are an investment in resilience and a value for money proposition for the business, through cost benefit analysis. Students will learn the terminology used by procurement professionals and how to influence decisions on awarding contracts to more resilient suppliers to create resilient supply chains.

Who should attend this course?

This course is aimed at Business Continuity and Resilience professionals who are responsible for their organisation’s BCM programme with a need to understand the importance of supply chain resilience and how to incorporate this into every day practice. It is recommended that students have a minimum of CBCI or equivalent credential with experience working in a continuity and resilience related role.

How our Online Courses work

Our online courses aim to replicate a classroom based course as closely as possible. Our tutors present the information in much the same way as they would in the classroom, using video conferencing software to share their screen and a webcam and microphone so you can see and hear them. You can interact with the tutor and ask questions via your own microphone/webcam, or text chat.
