I enjoyed the course and it's delivery by the consultant. I wish we were introduced and exposed to IT applications that could have helped with computations, charts and graphs. These would ease the pressure at work and provide the SCM practitioner with sufficient tools to deliver on his mandate to the company.
The course has impacted positively on our already acquired knowledge of supply chain management.. I recommend this course should continue in collaboration with Headquarters Ngeriia AIr Force.
