Manufacturing in a Global Network
Turning the global manufacturing network into a source of sustainable competitive advantage
The Manufacturing in a Global Network programme has been built on the former International Manufacturing Programme and has been revamped with a completely new content and new format. It is now a 5-day programme with a focus on the design, operation and performance measurement of key value-adding processes, such as the supply chain, new product development and organisational learning. The objective is to turn the global manufacturing network into a source of sustainable competitive advantage.
Today, manufacturing takes place in a constantly shifting global landscape. On the one hand companies are increasingly internationalising their operations by establishing design, manufacturing and distribution networks around the world. On the other hand global forces, including new trade agreements, emerging capabilities, technological developments and environmental concerns, necessitate constant re-examination of the firm’s international footprint. As a result, all aspects of operations management are undergoing change. Most fundamentally of all, the role of the operations manager is expanding onto a global scale.
In five intensive days, Manufacturing in a Global Network programme systematically analyses the changing landscape and its implications for operations managers. Above all, it shows you how to harness the power of global manufacturing networks to create a formidable competitive weapon.
- Acquire tools and concepts for effectively interfacing with a global ecosystem
- Build skills to design and operate global manufacturing networks – and improve management processes
- Develop understanding of macroeconomic trends, performance measures and organisational levers in manufacturing – increasing motivation and performance
