The demand for Supply Chain Management (SCM) professionals has grown considerably over the past years. Supported by an international focus on systematic approaches to human resources (HR) development, it is understood that focusing on training alone is not sufficient but rather consideration should be given to strengthening country learning and academic institutions and to applying systematic approaches to HR that also consider the wider supply chain marketplace for human resources.
