Supply Chain Management

In recent years, managing an organization’s supply chain has become increasingly important to the bottom line. People who work in supply chain contribute to profitability by negotiating vendor contracts, ensuring quality, and balancing the need to have supplies ready with the cost of storing goods for longer than needed.
