Supply chain outlook


Supply chain is seen as a strategic asset. The post-recession global
marketplace recognizes supply chain management as a key driver of
business success and viability.
Supply chain management is a well-established role in industries beyond
manufacturing, including retail, health care and technology.
Supply chain and operations management jobs are in demand.
200,000 U.S. supply chain jobs will go unfilled annually until 2018 for lack
of qualified talent.*

Why APICS CSCP is critical to supply chain success


The supply chain is all about cooperation and collaboration.
Supply chain management professionals need to understand the
interactions and inter-dependencies across the functions, and the often
conflicting pressures and imperatives of the various participants.
Many operations and supply chain professionals may not have had the
opportunity to work in all aspects of the supply chain and therefore might
be limited in their understanding of these interactions.
CSCP provides insights into how the various pieces work together and
what tools, approaches, technologies and measurements support and
encourage achievement of supply chain objectives.
A CSCP designation demonstrates a grasp of that knowledge and
documents the individuals competencefor the benefit of both the
individual and the organization.
