2021 SCMP Leadership Residency
MAY 2 -5, 2021

IMPORTANT CHANGE

The continued uncertainty and risks associated with the widespread COVID-19 have led us to amend our SCMP Leadership Residency. After careful consideration, we have decided to continue with last year’s format to a fully virtual one that will deliver our exceptional faculty and curriculum directly to our candidates.

2021 SCMP Leadership Residency

The 2021 SCMP Leadership Residency™ is an intensive four days that allows candidates to build upon the knowledge and skills they gained throughout their SCMP Designation Program and prepares them for the SCMP National Exam™.

Eligible candidates will take their education to a higher, more insightful level, immersing themselves in cutting-edge topics and advanced learning in areas such as data analytics, strategic planning and strategic foresight, design thinking, technology, outsourcing, supply disruption, as well as a prep session for the Exam. They will be challenged to think innovatively, act in a way that represents an SCMP, and set the standards of excellence that others follow. Everything our candidates have worked towards has led them here.

The schedule includes

We are creating the future leaders of supply chain who will prove integral to our industry and community in the coming years. As such, our approach is unique. In its virtual format, Leadership Residency becomes a far-reaching, inclusive experience that is easily accessible by all. As our candidates learn and grow, they reach the pinnacle of supply chain together.

Agenda

The topics covered will ensure our SCMPs™ are prepared to handle the expectations and demands associated with the designation. Each day will feature four sessions focusing participants on cutting-edge topics that expand their thinking as the emerging leaders in our profession. Candidates and current SCMP holders are entitled to full days’ experiences, or to choose a customized Residency!
