LSCM Seminar 2020

Training Objective

The training aims to broaden the understanding of Logistics and Supply Chain Management by providing a number of frameworks, concepts, and tools to develop participants’ analytical skills. The provided tools & skills support future decision making based on facts and figures rather than gut feelings and instincts.
Providing a broader understanding of SCM specific concerns beyond their own desk has shown positive effects on communication and coordination pattern among participating units. Participants from different departments and functions are encouraged to communicate proactively among each other equipped with the same technical knowledge jointly contributing to the successful and timely operation of the organizations’ supply chain.

Training Methodology

The training methodology has been developed in cooperation with teaching academics from International Universities and refined based on the evaluation of participants feedback. Teaching sessions are designed in an interactive and participative teaching approach. Participants are encouraged to get actively involved by sharing existing knowledge and experiences from their daily business. Besides transferring knowledge on concepts and principles around Logistics and Supply Chain Management, the seminars contribute to improved communication pattern and behavior among departments and functions in a sustainable way.

Real case scenarios brought in from participants, group discussions, and exercises support the application and testing of acquired knowledge. Each session is embedded in a series of knowledge and skill assessments using clear defined indicators to monitor and evaluate on participants learning progress prior and after the trainings.

Knowledge Gap Assessment

Participant´s skills, technical knowledge as well as behaviors and attitudes of targeted participants are assessed before the training. That way sessions content and methodology can be tailored in accordance to actual knowledge and skill gaps to make it relevant (e.g. selection of cases studies, exercises & literature handed out before and during sessions). Apart from that it enables documentation of the participant`s learning progress over the duration of the entire program.

The assessment is done from two perspectives by conducting a self-assessment in form of a online questionnaire sent out to the participants in combination with an assessment questionnaire completed by their respective supervisors.
