Welcome to Value Chain Management Programs

Integrate Strategy, Planning, and Operations.

Today, companies large and small are looking for advantages in execution-oriented professionals with the know-how to deliver the best products at the best cost in the best time.

Minerva’s Value Chain Management (VCM) programs prepare you to get it done. You’ll learn what it takes behind the scenes to streamline every step from raw material to consumption so you can make a real difference to the customer out front. Along the way, you’ll acquire a set of highly sought-after skills in the areas of demand planning, quality management, procurement, supply chain optimization, strategic sourcing, transportation and logistics, and materials and inventory management. You’ll also learn how to handle growing global issues, such as meeting developing countries’ need for goods while overcoming such barriers as dwindling natural resources and insufficient supply chain infrastructure.

Minerva’s VCM programs will expose you to in-demand quality management methods, such as Total Quality Management (TQM), and Theory of Constraints (TOC) and production practices. You’ll learn how to direct transportation, logistics, outsourcing, and other operations functions while you deepen your skills in managing projects and programs. Because Minerva’s VCM programs address relevant issues and trends facing the industry, you’ll be amply prepared to tackle key issues while bringing thought leadership to the table. For example, our programs train you on how to integrate environmental thinking throughout the supply chain, from green-friendly product design and material sourcing to responsible end-of-life management. Create opportunities for revolutionizing your operations through increased efficiencies in the design and management of your supply chain. In these programs, instructors present state-of-the-art models and practical tools for supply chain management and multi-plant coordination.

The Advantage of Minerva

Learning is a process, not a single event. Participants are encouraged to arrive at a program with specific issues they want resolved so their experience in the program can be shaped to help them achieve these goals. But they don't stop learning when class is dismissed. On return to the workplace, they schedule follow-up meetings with colleagues and advisers to pass on what they've learned, implement plans for organizational change and anticipate new challenges before they arise.

The Essence of Minerva Model

Peer learning does not occur by accident. Participants in Minerva Programs can learn as much from each other as they will from the faculty. At Minerva, we strive for both structured and informal peer learning opportunities — workshops, participant lectures, study groups, topic tables at meals, exercises and simulations, to name just a few. We also work to ensure that the people attending our courses are of comparable managerial and experience levels.
