Book Description

At a time when supply chain management (SCM) is gaining stature within the organization, many companies face a critical supply chain talent void due to years of headcount reduction, training budget cuts, and the retirement of highly skilled individuals. Supply Chain Management Talent Development: Acquire, Develop, and Advance Processes gives supply chain leaders and managers a framework for hiring talented professionals with skills that are core to the organization’s SCM mission, analyzing the organizational strategies for SCM training and education, and creating innovative plans that foster greater retention of supply chain professionals. This publication is authored by CSCMP, the premiere organization of the supply chain management industry.
