CILT Certificate in Digital Supply Chain Strategy (CDSCS)

Why Attend

A radically changed world is forcing organizations to revisit the way they operate their supply chains. Innovations in digital technology and a shift in consumer behaviour have made the digital transformation of supply chains a priority across industries. The need for a digital supply chain strategy has become foundational for organizational sustainability.

In this course, which is certified by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), we will learn how to develop a digital supply chain strategy that can take organizations into the future. We will also explore various digital technologies as they relate to supply chains as well as experiment with design-inspiration and design-thinking concepts. In addition, we will examine the importance of collaboration for the optimization of information and product flows across supply chain partners. Finally, we will zoom in on the “digital mindset” and organizational principles that are required to drive supply chain strategies forward.
