This was informative training, and I wish I had taken it sooner! The content can be dry (statistics) was made interesting through good graphic design and engaging examples, so the math was not as intimidating. I particularly enjoyed the combination of practical skills with soft skills for each phase.

They make the info easy to digest and the ability to go at your own pace through the coursework is ideal. Seemingly unlimited number of resources to assist along the way. Would recommend to any Supply Chain professional!
