Logistics Expertise Shared with Industry through Executive Course



Seminar participants at the Edinburgh Business School

Earlier this month the School of Social Sciences, in collaboration with Edinburgh Business School, were delighted to welcome the Kuehne Foundation and delegates of the European Network Management for Logistics Processes (ENLoP) for a two-day seminar on Performance Improvement and the Supply Chain.  

This is the fourth year we have contributed to ENLoP by providing expert traning in the latest developments in logistics and supply chain management to delegates from a range of organisations. 

This year's seminar drew on the research and commercial experience of Prof. Umit Bititici, Dr Phil Greening, Dr Chris Rutherford and Prof. Jiju Antony, who shared their expertise areas of Logistics and Supply Chain Management and Operations Management. 

Delivered as part of the School of Social Sciences' Corporate Executive Development programme, the seminar was tailored to meet the requirements of the Kuehne Foundation, an initiative founded in Switzerland in 1976 to promote training, further education and research in the fields of logistics and transport.

We are always interested to hear how our industry-focused teaching is received by those working in the field so we asked some of the delagates for some feedback and here's what they said. 

Some of the concepts are new to me and provided interesting insight on how I can apply them to my industry - good food for thought!

The course provided me with new perspectives for me and engaging group discussion which resulted accumulated to reflection of possible improvements on our company.
