TLI-PBT: Project-Based Training in Logistics / Supply Chain Innovation and Solutioning


The project-based training is designed to equip participants with essential skills for Logistics Process Improvement and Logistics Solutioning, and it is aimed at enhancing participants’ capability to solve their company-related logistics and supply chain management problems, raising the overall competitiveness of Singapore's logistics industry.

The Institute will identify a theme. Participants may scope out a project/problem statement to embark on based on the theme. Ranging from a class-size of 5 (min) to 20 (max) participants, the training will consist of 4 one-day workshop sessions and 4 half-day mentoring sessions, over a period of 2-3 months.

The 6-day Project Based Training will guide participants through the thinking process from problem definition to modelling to solution. The training aims to enable participants to:

(1) develop insights, strategies, or methodologies to sharpen analysis and problem-solving skills,
(2) adopt innovation for identifying and enabling new opportunities, and
(3) understand the impact to the level of competitiveness of their companies.

Participants who wish to expand the project scope to fit their company-specific problem/issue may engage further with the institute and seek funding support from the relevant agencies.
