Stores managers need to know the rationale behind the procedures and practices employed in their facility. Their understanding and knowledge must be at a level such that they can manage their supervisory staff with confidence and authority. They must be able to contribute strongly to policy and process development as well as themselves leading the development of appropriate and robust procedures for their department. 
This course is designed for experienced staff operating as senior supervisors, stores managers and stores superintendents. It is also appropriate for people soon to be promoted into such roles and for graduates on rapid development routes. 
By the end of the programme participants will have:
  • an awareness of global best practice
  • an ability to compare options for equipment, systems, processes and procedures
  • a true appreciation and understanding of the rationale behind existing methods
