Global Supply Chain

>> Culture and Behaviour

Develop the key skills & knowledge-base in your supply chain network to work effectively in today’s globalised environment

Global supply chain network professionals are increasingly recognising that one of the keys to building a successful and sustainable global model is to develop ever deeper levels of cultural knowledge and fluency within the organisation.  They recognise that it is critical to make cross-border and multicultural interpersonal working relationships as effective as possible and that to achieve that aim they need to factor in the local business cultures of the myriad of places they liaise with.

Supply chain network professionals have to manage these cultural differences within a framework of contractual rights, obligations and responsibilities to both customer and logistics service providers as well as internally within their own organisation. They have to ensure that recognition, rewards and incentives are aligned to cultural expectations in order to ensure the desired behaviours.
