Africa gearing up for supply chain productivity and operational improvements

| 0 Comments
Africa_map.jpgThe Institute of Operations Management (IOM) in the United Kingdom has added IOM Africa to its growing regional network, under the presidency of SmartProcurement editorial board member Douglas Boateng.

Through the IOM Africa Region, operations and supply chain management professionals throughout Africa will benefit from the increased availability of world class and practical education, training and membership programmes.

The IOM's key qualifications framework moves professionals up through the IOM's membership grades (and corresponding designatory letters), which demonstrate an individual's professional credibility and commitment, wherever they are in their career.

Dr Douglas Boateng.gif“IOM is the oldest focused professional body for operations management in the manufacturing arena, service industries and public sector manufacturing in Europe,” says Dr Boateng. “I opted to exclusively partner with IOM after a careful investigation of many professional bodies over a 24-month period; and believe IOM is the best available to transform operations and supply chain management related human capital in Africa.”

IOM is confident it is entering Africa with a seasoned supply chain professional with a proven track record, reach and competence.

“The relationship with Dr Boateng reinforces our strategy to extend our professional reach in supply chain and operations and human capital development solution sets into, amongst others, agriculture, mining, manufacturing / production, services, state-owned enterprises and public sectors on the entire African continent and the emerging world. Under Dr Boateng’s Presidency, we look forward to assisting and supporting our current and future members in the region as they embark on major sustainable supply chain, operational and service delivery improvements within their respective organisations,” says Leonie Edwards, IOM Manager.
