Training and Development in the Supply Chain


With big investment decisions, everything in a company runs hot. Such decisions often occur in the supply chain. Owing to the close connections between the individual areas, they are responsible for crucial advantages. Unfortunately, poor decisions result in significant disadvantages. The same applies to training and development measures in the field of logistics. The right employee training can have a decisive, positive effect on the logistics processes.

A safe investment

Our many years of experience in the field of supply chains and training shows that targeted training can reduce countless empty kilometers in a company. But what does targeted mean? Who determines the requirements and how do you approach it systematically? Is it the responsibility of the human resources department, does this exist in your company at all and what is valued in the process? It is crucial to determine a target audience who at least have needs in the same areas. The same starting requirements aren’t necessarily required.

The preparation is the be all and end all

In order to allow for smooth implementation, all of the organizational issues need to be resolved in addition to all of the content preparation. This is the trainer’s responsibility.Here, particular care must be taken in the precise definition of objectives with the people responsible. The learning objectives are then also clarified with the participants. Depending on the requirements for the training, multiple rounds of consultation may be required. Ideally, the employer is also actively involved in the development of complex, tailor-made training concepts. If there is a common basis between the employer, trainer and participants, this is already a big step towards success.

The right mix is essential

After the preparation, you move to detail planning by the trainer. Here, the specialist expertise from the field of logistics and supply chain management, paired with the trainer’s methodological know-how, is crucial.
