On Monday 13 November the MOOC "Supply Chain Innovation: How Technology Can Create a Sustainable Future" will start its fourth run on the FutureLearn platform.
As part of this free course, participants from all over the world will learn how they can improve the chain they are working in with relatively easy means, as well as make it more sustainable. Key themes of the course are today’s supply chain practice, the latest academic knowledge and relevant innovations from the field of ICT. Innovating supply chains requires out-of-the-box thinking. The boundaries between disciplines, departments, companies and countries need to be overcome in order to improve the chain. The course therefore focuses on professionals and students who want to look beyond disciplines such as production, distribution, marketing and finance. Participants of the MOOC gain insight into the network of activities from production to customer. This supply chain perspective is where the most opportunities for innovation can be found.
