Supply chain management and logistics are integral to the success of organisations, both in the private and public sectors. It is an area of study that targets several key functions that are involved in the acquisition of goods and services. Though they may vary from one market sector to the other, generally, in summary, these functions can involve, strategic procurement, demand planning, physical distribution, logistics, and warehouse management. As supply chain governance and best practice strategies become commonplace in today’s developing and modern enterprises and states, greater expectations are demanded from the supply chain and logistics professionals intended towards the organisations achieving their objectives.

Supply chain managers therefore are expected to predict demand challenges and anticipate consumer demand trends often linked to the Forester Effect. They are also expected to manage supplier inputs and build collaborative relationships where applicable. In order to achieve this, in-depth market analysis and understanding of the procurement process must be known. Professionals must also embrace the advancements made in AI which has now afforded supply chains, greater accuracy, and efficiency. The purpose of the programmes, therefore, is to equip professionals with the necessary knowledge to meet these expectations of the supply chain and logistics stakeholders and the overarching business objectives.
