Navigating the Numbers: A Supply Manager's Guide to Defining and Applying Economic and Financial Concepts


University of Wisconsin Banner Ad


Thursday, October 22, 2009

Supply managers continue to find themselves immersed in a sea of numbers. To gain competitive advantage and navigate through today's rocky economy, supply chain professionals need the ability to make sense of a multitude of numbers -- what they mean, where they come from, how to forecast them, and how they impact supply management decisions. Flexibility has become the norm as we strive to keep up with ever-changing sources and regulations. This satellite seminar will help supply management professionals become savvy with various economic and financial concepts and terminology. Topics covered will include leading and lagging indicators, Gross Domestic Product, economic indexing, money markets and forecasting models, as well as how economic factors in business and the world affect purchasing and supply management.
