Tidligere deltagere udtaler

”Jeg har fået rigtig meget ud af kurset, fordi det giver et super godt overblik over hele processen og alle de elementer og discipliner, der indgår når ens supply chain for alvor skal spille. Samtidig fik jeg en opdatering i form af en global terminologi, for det er en ekstra gevinst ved at følge APICS kurserne, idet der her arbejdes konstant med at vedligeholde og videreudvikle det faglige indhold – the body of knowledge og de metoder og den terminologi, der knytter sig til. På den måde fik jeg også et SCM sprog, som er relevant og kan anvendes globalt, ikke bare inden for klassisk produktions- og fremstillingsvirksomheder, men også inden for logistik, distribution, indkøb og procesoptimeringsmetoder som for eksempel Lean, TQM og Six Sigma mv.”
Morten Boesen, Direktør for Just Eat Dilivery i DK og Norge

“Det kan altid betale sig at investere i kompetenceudvikling af medarbejderne – det giver værdi til virksomheden, styrker medarbejdernes motivation og øger virksomheds- og markedsværdi. Det har været et klart valg for indkøbsfunktionen at bruge kompetenceløft af medarbejderne, til at kunne sikre vores strategi om at være ”Excellent in Inbound Supply Management.”
Malene Gundestrup, Director, Inbound Supply Management, Novo Nordisk A/S
