MODULE 1 OUTLINE:

PURCHASING AND SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

 

MODULE 1 BACKGROUND AND AIMS:

In Module 1 ‘Purchasing & Supply Chain Management’ (PSCM) we examine the concepts, principles and practices of PSCM, with a particular focus on its role in organizations. PSCM has grown as a discipline both in practice and in education in recent years and therefore now offers excellent career opportunities. Many companies have elevated PSCM to a strategic function; it is important that future managers understand the potential contribution of PSCM not only to achieve cost savings but also to create value for the organization as a whole. The recent focus on supply chain risk and sustainability has further boosted the focus on PCSM as organizations are faced with long-term global risks and turbulence as well as economic, environmental and social challenges. This course therefore examines the principles, concepts and approaches of Purchasing and Supply Chain Management and its role in reducing costs and improving customer value.
