Time:   5:30 PM
Location:   Virtual, Instructor Led (Alberta)

In order to abide by social distancing measures due to COVID-19, we have moved all our in-class modules and workshops to virtually accessible platforms. 

Module Overview

The goal of this module is to develop the abilities of SCMP candidates to identify the issues about and develop strategies for service sector supply chain management and large projects supply chain management. This module is supported by a variety of articles on services, large projects and sustainability in procurement.

In earlier modules and workshops, supply chain management was considered in many different contexts. Topics such as logistics, operations management, project management and social responsibility were explored in detail. This module draws upon the knowledge obtained throughout the SCMP Program and applies that knowledge to the service sector, large projects and sustainable supply chains.

Module Goals

  • Describe the unique characteristics of services and how they differ from manufactured goods
  • Define growth in the services sector and the need for performance optimization

  • Perform basic capital equipment investment analysis
