Supply chain management, which supply chain and logistical systems is part of, includes a company’s planning, quality control, logistics and distribution, and inventory and procurement. Stellar supply chain management is vital to the health and success of nearly any organization, from corporate to nonprofit to government, to military logistics and defense to manufacturing, retail, and more.

The key to success in supply chain management comes from the ability to incorporate a depth of knowledge with ever-evolving technological savvy to communicate data-driven concepts and strategize for profitability, sustainability, planning and operations, and other aspects of business that produce growth while serving domestic and international populations seamlessly.
