To flourish in the twenty-first century, businesses must develop figureheads who can respond to change in a globalized world, integrate resources all through the distribution chain, understand the consequences of all decisions, and contribute to their organisations’ operational performance. The APICS-CSCP course arms them with all these things. Companies are dealing with greater competition and rising customer expectations, while also adjusting to a barrage of technological advances, quickly evolving business operations and a virtual detonation of knowledge and new issues.
Successful organisations in the twenty-first century will be value-driven global leaders who make effective use of humans and innovation. These successful organisations, whether for profit, government, or professional, will only be as good as their governance. Organizations need to change to encounter the challenges of the twenty-first century, and future leaders must arise to lead them. These new leaders must be goal-oriented and competent in conceptualising and developing their organisations in order to achieve these objectives. They must be familiar with all aspects of the organisations they manage.
