SCOR-DS 
Supply Chain Operations Reference Model-Digital Standard

This two-day course is about optimizing supply chain performance using the SCOR-DS model. The SCOR framework allows companies to analyze and improve supply chain performance by gaining insight into performance gaps. The main components of the SCOR model are Processes, Performance, Practices, People, and Workflows. These main components are interlinked with each other. During the course, you will learn the relationship between these different components and how to utilize them for performance improvements.  

Completion of the SCOR training provides knowledge and skills for applying the SCOR framework. Students can utilize the SCOR tools inside their organization and focus on improving supply chain performance.

To learn more about the SCOR model, read our blog "SCOR model for supply chain excellence."
