Supply Chain Management – How to Become Top of Your Game

Supply Chain Management is the process by which materials, services, information and finances flow from supplier to consumer through the various business networks. This includes planning, manufacturing, wholesale and retail. The whole process of networks involved, and the management of these stages is crucial to the efficiency of the operation.

So how do you become top of your game? How do you ensure that you are controlling the chain as efficiently as possible?

Increasingly over the past 10 years the National Vocational Qualification in Procurement has become recognised by both organisations and individuals, as a valid and robust alternative to the traditional examination based route to full Corporate Membership of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (MCIPS). Not only do Supply Chain Management NVQs provide a structured framework for learning, but they are also the ideal solution for measuring the effective implementation of that learning into the workplace.

Overview of the Standards

The NVQ Standards are designed to cover a wide range of management roles and are therefore available at levels 2, 3, 4 and 5 with each level having its own clearly defined list of core and optional units.

The core units at each respective level of the NVQ standards focus on those competencies which are deemed to be fundamental to any individual operating in a supply chain role at that level, and therefore must be completed by all students as part of their qualification.

The optional units are contained within the specialist sections of the NVQ and cover activities such as Supplier and Contract Management, Developing and Contributing to Strategies, Sourcing, Inventory and Materials Management Transport and Distribution, Warehousing and finally, Project Management.

Whether you are an individual wishing to achieve MCIPS or MCMI status, or a Purchasing Manager wishing to implement a vocational corporate training and development programme for your staff, an NVQ in purchasing and procurement could be the platform you need to get to the top of your game.
