SCALA to Hold First Demand Driven Training Course

Certified Demand Driven Planner

SCALA is stepping up its efforts to promote Demand Driven supply chain planning in the UK by holding its first CDDP training course.

The Demand Driven approach is the latest evolution in end-to-end supply chain management and is rapidly emerging as ‘best practice’ to handle today’s more volatile, complex and service-oriented supply and manufacturing scenarios.



SCALA’S two-day training course will see successful participants earn the Certified Demand Driven Planner (CDDP)™ qualification awarded by the International Supply Chain Education Alliance.

The course is being held at Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire on June 16 & 17, 2016 and the course fee is £975 plus VAT per person.
