The success of any company relies on the management of its supply chain. UKZN Extended Learning (UEL) recently offered the Supply Chain Management (SCM) three-day short course, for delegates wishing to explore logistics, operations, manufacturing and quality assurance. The key focus areas included Global competitive context, Demand forecasting and inventory management and Distribution and logistics management.

Wendy Ngubane, a Sales Consultant from Standard Bank, defined her experience on the course as extremely informative as she is looking forward to starting up her own business. She also described the facilitators’ as well versed practitioners in the field of SCM.

The facilitators included Mr Ravi Nadar (Nampak’s Decision Support Analyst and Lecturer), Mr Kishan Singh (Chairman and Lecturer at IPSA), and Mr Khondlo Mtshali (Expert facilitator in SCM policies and legislative frameworks).
