Launch of Next-Generation Supply Chain Training Programs by Supply Chain Insights.

In this podcast the Founder of Supply Chain Insights shares information on the three options for companies to take advantage of a new form of collaborative learning designed for supply chain leaders. In October Supply Chain Insights finalized seven classes on the CorpU platform to help in building end-to-end supply chain leadership. The materials can be deployed in three ways:

The first is the Next Generation Supply Chain. Individuals will join the online learning in a cross-company cohort. In this cohort individuals will learn and share Next-Generation Supply Chain academy across companies. The second option for the training is to use the social platform from CorpU, and the packaged training for strategy activation—a new project, the 2017 strategy, or M&A– within a company.  In addition, the third option, the Intensive Bootcamp, is a face-to-face training in Philadelphia in mid-January 2017. Three options. New options for building talent. In this podcast, Lora Cecere and Alison Crawford discuss the details of the three training options from Supply Chain Insights– Academy, Internal Company cohorts, and Intensive Bootcamp-along with the pluses and minuses for each.
