About the Course

This course provides a basis for understanding the supply chain and related organizational dynamics. A supply chain includes all activities and processes used to provide a product or service to the final customer. It also includes the activities and processes to manage the flows of information, funds, and returned goods among the supply chain entities.

Course Description

Each organization participates in one or more supply chains, and each supply chain competes with other supply chains in the same market segments. The entities in a supply chain can attempt to maximize efficiency, effectiveness, and/or agility. This course explores the entities in a supply chain and the flows and relationships among them. It also explores historical objectives of the functional organizational units within enterprises and how these objectives can create conflicts.
