Understanding Supply Chain Ecosystems

Course Level 3: Advanced

Estimated Study Time: 2-3 hours

Supply Chain Ecosystems are made up of a network of organizations, people, activities, information, and resources all of which are involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer.

The course begins by describing how modern supply chains have evolved into complex international networks, which can no longer be adequately described using the linear concept of a ‘chain’. The course then reviews how modern supply chain ecosystems now comprise of a network of companies, countries and their governments, social and political organisations, natural, industrial (clusters), financial and human resources, delivery infrastructure including logistics and IT, and knowledge of the industrial environment. You will learn how within these ecosystems, each configuration is unique to the particular enterprise that owns that supply chain.
