SC Certification Programs: Strategic Leadership in the 21st Century

The Supply Chain [SC] Certification Programs deliver a series of professional designations in specialized areas that will equip supply chain logistics professionals with the competencies required to implement a resilient supply chain strategy while discovering new opportunities to succeed in the face of constant challenge, change and opportunity.

To enhance the competencies of logistics practitioners and professionals in meeting the challenges of 21st Century global supply chains, the Logistics Institute has designed this new certification program on project management by separating it into three discrete but inter-connected areas of expertise within an overall management context, where key project management concepts are introduced, project management competencies are developed and enhanced through simulations and experience-based learning methods, and a focus specifically on Value and Risk issues associated with projects and project management.

The third program in our series of SC programs is the International Project Management Program.

In this certification program, the Logistics Institute separates “project management” into three discrete but inter-connected areas of expertise within an overall management context:

  • PROJECT: a time-based endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end, usually time-constrained and often constrained by funding and deliverables, undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value.
  • PROGRAM: a dossier of related projects and related activities delivering large scale transformation change.
  • PORTFOLIO: the centralized management of processes, methods, technologies used to analyze and manage collectively current or proposed projects based on achieving such objectives as determining optimal resource mix for delivering and scheduling activities to achieve an organization’s operational and financial goals, while honoring constraints imposed by customers, business strategies, or expressed real-world factors.
