“Artificial intelligence will Revolutionise Supply Chain in ways that haven’t even been thought of yet” – Dave Waters
Employees are hired with a certain set of knowledge, skills, and abilities, if the role and responsibilities of the position change – and they will, the employee / employer need to reinvest in upskilling and reskilling.
Our aim, as always, is to assist with continuous professional development of NZ supply chain community. We plan to achieve this through customising our program to meet your / your teams requirement/s.
Learning is a lifelong process, continues professional development helps keeps one knowledge and skills relevant today and the future.

Post the success of our May, SCOR-P session we are running another SCOR-P session on September 13, 14 & 15th (3 full days) in Auckland (F2F or Zoom). The course includes – SCOR-P collateral, Instructor led session and exams.
About SCOR – the SCOR model provides a unique framework that links business process, metrics, best practices, technology and personnel skills into a unified structure to support communication among supply chain partners and to improve the effectiveness of SCM and related supply chain improvement activities. One unique feature about SCOR as opposed to most frameworks is that it is not simply a list of processes, practices, or metrics. It combines all three and adds pre-defined relationships between processes in terms of material, information, and workflows.
If you are looking at improving or benchmarking your supply chain – SCOR -P will help.
Last day to register for the SCOR-P program is August 12th, 2022.
