Hear it directly from P.Logs:
I earned my P.Log through the online Process Management Program. I found the program to be very well-rounded and informative, and a very rewarding experience for myself. Rewarding personally, because I gained new perspectives that I can bring forward throughout my career, and rewarding professionally, because my company invested in me.
I am happy to have been a part of the Process Management program offered by The Logistics Institute. The content focuses on supply chain strategies and logistic processes which are in rapid flux right now. This is a great kickoff program for a new generation of supply chain influencers, and a great refresher for the more experienced professional.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I signed up for the P.Log certification. I have extensive experience (+34 years) in International transportation (import/export) but only recently have I been involved in warehousing and distribution. The pre-work we needed to complete prior to going on-site gave me a great insight in this area. Furthermore, during the group workshops I was exposed to other students far more experienced than myself as we made decisions for our grocery store business. It was fabulous! Over and above the collaborative methods; the course offered excellent Leadership training through speakers and visual effects.
Outside of the “training”, the networking and relationship building with the rest of the students is very valuable. I recommend the program to anyone.
Absolutely, it has made me a more competitive candidate. Now when I see candidates with P.Log certification, I know that I am getting a very qualified individual. From my standpoint, I feel that more senior level Managers are ensuring they have their P.Log designation due to its reputation and high regard.
Through the P.Log program, I was able to network with a wonderful group of people from very diverse background including many in the military. I learned a great deal from many of them and had my eyes opened to opportunities I previously didn’t even know existed.
I truly enjoyed the effort of earning the P.Log. The program is so well designed and touches on all modern day supply chain narratives, and is well worth the effort. It really added so much more insight and understanding to my Supply Chain point of view. I would highly recommend the P.Log designation for any Supply Chain Professional at all levels of Management, who truly wants to take their understanding of new 21st century Supply Chain Ecosystem to the next level!
P.Log: Professional Logistician
The P.Log designation is a public statement of your leadership, competence and credibility, and your competitive advantage in the supply chain and logistics community. It is a recognition of your skills, knowledge and aptitude to lead.
The P.Log is a leader:
- Who transforms organizations as a change agent and builds capabilities in others to implement change;
- With competitive edge to create customer value, and with competence as a supply chain logistics practitioner to sustain that value; and
- With the self-confidence to make difficult decisions and accept responsibility for the consequences of those decisions.
The 2020 Survey of the Logistics Professional, conducted by Canadian Shipper Magazine, shared that P.Log respondents reported the highest salary amongst supply chain professional designation holders.
