“I was privileged to be part of the first SCOR-P training in Bangalore, India earlier this year. The training was extremely informative, well delivered by the two instructors and well-structured with its case study approach. As supply chain professionals we are constantly analyzing our supply chain performance metrics and implement improvement projects to be benchmarked with the best in class. The SCOR-P training arms supply chain leaders with the necessary framework that can help guide implementation of these projects in a well-defined and proven methodology. I highly recommend this training. An added plus was the opportunity to connect and network with other supply chain professionals from different industries and countries.”
