Executive Program in Supply Chain Management

This practice-oriented program investigates a new MIT framework for better managing supply chains in today's rapidly changing markets. Participants will explore:

  • How to better structure a company's supply-chain strategy
  • Guidelines for making strategic sourcing and make-buy decisions
  • How to integrate e-business thinking into supply chain strategy and management
  • “Clockspeed benchmarking,” a tool for deriving critical business insights and management lessons from industries with the highest obsolescence rates of products, process technologies, and organizational structures (industrial "fruit flies")
  • Why all advantages in fast clockspeed environments are temporary
