Superior training, tailored to your organization’s needs

Your Academy Training and Blended learning
At Supply Chain Academy we understand that no company or institution is identical. We have the proven experience and flexibility to provide each organization with uniquely crafted programs to meet its specific objectives and challenges. Whilst the unique and well liked High-Impact E-learning courses remain the backbone of our training, we can offer a series of other training delivery methods that, where appropriate, will further enhance the learning effect.

These training delivery methods include:

  • Webinars – fun and highly animated, these virtual application labs focus on how to apply learning from previously taken online courses. If done well, this proves to be an extremely powerful combination.
  • Workshops – instructor-led on-site workshops with world-class trainers, having delivered between 100 and 500 workshops! Quality remains important, even in classroom.

High-Impact E-learning

Scenario-based supply chain courses using real life situations

At Supply Chain Academy, we have invested time and effort to develop the very best E-learning courses in the market. The advanced visual and instructional design is based on the cognitive load principles, one of the most researched theories for learning and the brain. This scientific approach makes learning significantly more effective.

The innovative design of the courses is guaranteed to provide an active learning experience, where learners can interactively work at their own pace. The scenario based E-learning puts them in recognizable day-to-day situations and encourages them to actively apply their knowledge and practice skills. Sounds simple? It is absolutely not.
The development time of such “High-Impact” E-learning courses is 5 to 10 times longer than more traditional forms of E-learning. View Demo

Our courses are fun to take and systematically receive excellent ratings from the learners. These ratings are often higher than those of traditional classroom learning. But perhaps more important: our research finds that the courses have a similar learning effect as classroom seminars. (Ask for our white paper for more info).

At present, there are more than 70 E-learning courses available, covering 9 distinct supply chain competences. Additional courses are being developed continuously to keep up with the rapidly changing requirements of the supply chain function. Evolutionary change, revolutionary solutions!

Supply chain courses can be taken individually or in bundles, also referred to as Master Classes. These Master Classes are the most popular solution as they cover a large part of a competence or a specific domain of expertise. For example, “Managing a world-class RFP process” starts off with a course on developing specifications, followed by a course on “running an RFP”, “assessment of offers & negotiation”, “contracting” and finally a course on “ethics”. It is closed off with an online assessment.

Supply Chain Course Formats from Supply Chain Academy


Webinars

Highly effective and cost-efficient

Supply Chain Academy offers a comprehensive series of virtual classes or webinars.
These online sessions are designed to both reinforce and build upon the content of our High-Impact E-learning courses.
The majority of these webinars, or ‘Virtual Application Labs’, are focused on implementing course content into practice, with great emphasis on stakeholder communication. The Labs are built around real-life implementation problems, which learners will associate with.
Other webinars, the ‘Virtual Classes’, on the other hand focus on further knowledge development and a critical analysis of theoretical concepts.

Workshops

Bridging the gap between theory and practice

Supply Chain Academy’s workshops bring the content from the E-learning and webinars together in a live environment, further narrowing the space between theory and your own practice.
The workshops are delivered on-site, and students are encouraged to actively participate in group exercises and problem-solving sessions. All participating students receive a full set of seminar guidance notes that may contain tools, checklists, templates, reference articles and other training aids.
The workshops are led by highly experienced instructors, having delivered between 100 and 500 workshops across the globe. The workshops are designed to align the learning objectives with your organization’s strategic priorities.
