Outcomes

There is a worldwide need for supply chain management (SCM) practitioners because as organizations become larger and more complex; they need their primary and support activities to be incorporated in such a way that the varying wants of stakeholders may be appeased.

In essence, an effective supply chain manager is a specialist in logistics, quality assurance, and a generalist in management and particularly general management. He or she, therefore, needs to fully understand the various logistics activities, be well conversant in the four management tasks (planning, organizing, leading and controlling) and fully understand the management functional areas such as marketing, HR, operations, finance and so on.

The secret of effective and efficient SCM lies in the supply chain manager’s ability to integrate all of the aforementioned logistics activities, the four management tasks, and various management functional areas, so that the requirements of up and down-stream customers may be satisfied as effectively and cost-efficiently as possible.

As an organization can use SCM to differentiate itself against its competitors and use such unique attributes to obtain a competitive advantage, effective SCM can lead to reduced costs, improved sales, increased product and service quality, higher profits, and as importantly enhanced stakeholder Relationships. No wonder SCM has become one of the most sought after careers worldwide!
