June 30th may be end of Q2 for most of you, for NZPICS it’s our year end. Thank you for supporting NZPICS over the year/s.
A year that has seen many ups and down not only for us but for a lot of you, your business. We’ve survived through the pandemic as many of you have. NZPICS isn’t / wasn’t immune to COVID, over the COVID down time we worked to fine tune our existing offering and added a few new programs (Edukazi, SCOR-P, ISCEA to name a few).
Learning is a lifelong process, continues professional development helps keep one knowledge and skills relevant today and future.
Take care, be safe and look after yourself.

2. SCOR-P session September 2022
Post the success of our May, SCOR-P session we are running another SCOR-P session in September this year. For those who couldn’t make it to the May session, here’s your chance. We will run this session over three days, mid-September (tbc). 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.
