As someone who did not have a supply chain background, this course was surprisingly filled to the brim with buzzwords, key concepts, and decent explanations and gave me a thorough understanding of the basics of SCM!

Basics of Supply Chain Own Review

Probably one of the best courses I conducted, a distinctive and simple way of explanation. Excellent learning outcome and skills gained from the course. at the end, I had a great time in fully understanding all the basics of supply chain. Opinions. To add: 10 s, forward or backward for the videos is important instead of the random navigating. To adjust: A quiz after every video with final quiz.
