What is the course about?

Human resources are the backbone of a successful supply chain but are often the least invested in resource, with high staff turnover, lack of productivity and unfilled posts often the norm.

This PSA short course uses a 'Plan-Do-Check-Act' approach to engage supply chain managers to better understand the importance of systematically engaging in human resources capacity development. Participants will be introduced to a locally grounded systematic approach focusing on ‘policy and planning’, ‘leadership development’, workforce development’, ‘performance management and retention’ and professionalization’.

When applied, the strategies, tools and techniques developed in this course will enable participants to engage in meaningful management and long term capacity development of the human resources they rely on to manage their supply chain.



Who should attend this course?

This course will be beneficial to any mid or upper level manager responsible for managing human resources in health and humanitarian supply chains and multilateral capacity development employees who engage with governments to promote systematic development of human resources.



Course Objective

This five day course builds on participant’s initial understanding of human resources capacity development and management through interacting with their own country or organisational data to better understand priority human resource interventions.From this basis interactive sessions provide the background knowledge supporting the need for systematic management of human resources.

This knowledge is applied through the introduction of case studies and the sharing and using of tools designed to address five interrelated areas: ‘policy and planning’, ‘leadership development’, workforce development’, ‘performance management and retention’ and professionalization’.

Participants will be guided through 'Plan-Do-Check-Act' approach that has as its aim a clear prioritised work plan suitable for their specific context, supported by tools and techniques to make it happen.



Course Learning Outcomes

By the conclusion of this five day course participants will:

  1. Have a detailed understanding of what is required to effectively manage human resources in the context of health and humanitarian supply chains.
  2. Be equipped with strategies, tools and techniques to engage in day to day human resources management, and undertake strategic approaches for longer term capacity development.
  3. Better understand their local context and have a clear prioritized plan on how to take action to apply what has been learnt with the support of tested resources.

As part of the training, you will be provided with a complementary Health Supply Chain Skills Profile (Competency Assessment) which is an online questionnaire that measures technical, management and leadership competencies covering six key areas of health supply chain work set out in the People that Deliver (PtD) Health Supply Chain Competency Framework for Managers and Leaders. The personal feedback report provides three scorecards that profile your technical, management and leadership competencies.
