Talent and Skills Development
APICS knows supply chain from end-to-end like no other. It’s a claim we make because we are the professional association that sets the standard for the skills, knowledge, practices and processes that enable supply chains to transform the way businesses operate.
Build a Performance-driven Learning Culture
When it comes to developing high-performing teams within supply chain organizations, APICS helps members <link to corporate membership page> understand skill gaps, benchmark performance and deploy performance-driven learning programs <link to credentials and learning page> based on globally recognized best practices and operational standards.
Assess Skill Gaps
The APICS Supply Chain Skills Inventory helps identify the strengths of employees as companies benchmark their overall level of supply chain talent. Organizations can then create a supply chain talent development plan that eliminates skill gaps and improves organizational performance.
Benchmark Supply Chain Performance
APICS members have another powerful tool to bridge performance gaps. The SCORmark benchmarking tool <link to SCORmark page> is the first step to define competitive requirements, identify performance gaps and set performance goals. From there, APICS works with organizations to develop a roadmap to improve supply chain performance <link to SCOR>.
