Creating highly skilled supply chain teams

Bridging the talent gaps in your supply chain

The supply chain talent gap is real…and widening

Hundreds of supply chain teams around the world depend on ASCM for robust talent training and leadership development programs.

According to MHI’s Annual Industry Report, 54% of supply chain leaders say that hiring and retaining qualified workers is a top challenge.

With the continued digitization of the supply chain and the retirement of current workers, it’s increasingly difficult for supply chain leaders to find the right people for the right jobs.

At the management level, this includes identifying talent who not only have specialized technical skills, but also the have the ability to think critically, learn on the job, and handle multiple tasks at once.
