Tidligere deltager udtaler
“Jeg har tidligere taget APICS CPIM forløbet, derfor var det et naturligt valg i min faglige kompetanceudvikling at gennemføre CSCP uddannelsen. Jeg mener, at jeg har fået en større viden, så jeg nu har en mere helhedsorienteret tilgang til jobbet og de daglige udfordringer. Som deltager i diverse supply chain projekter og Continuous improvement forløb, er det en kæmpe fordel, at have den teoretiske ballast som CSCP uddannelsen giver. Desuden var det meget inspirerende, at møde andre Supply Chain Specialister på kurset, og en god mulighed for at udvide netværket.”
