I was working in a middle-sized German company in Strategic Purchasing where work was more about sourcing, i.e. identifying suppliers and setting up the relationships initially, negotiating prices once a year and so, but only touched on transportation and storage issues. When setting up a whole new SC for a product range, I became a lot more interested in this field and decided that this was a focus I would rather like to pursue. Thus I decided to embark on postgrad studies in SCM that would equip me with more focused theoretical knowledge. So far it’s been an enjoyable journey.
