Project Management in Supply Chains

Project Management processes and tools are found in every function of a business, and supply chain is no exception.  Project management is not necessarily linked to supply chains, and supply chain management doesn’t often include specifics of project management -- but there is some powerful synergy when the two are combined! 

Attend this webinar to learn:

  • Shared core values of PMI and supply chains
  • Most common applications / use of project management for supply chains
  • Supply chain contracts and PMI phase comparison
  • Shared challenges
  • A winning combination when paired effectively

Speaker: Jane Tierney


Jane Tierney founded Purple Link in 2015, sharing with clients that there’s a much better way to obtain value through the supply chain. Clients find dollars leaking through their supply chains, draining the bottom line, and uncover risks lurking in the supply chain that emerge at the worst possible time. With Purple Link, clients develop skills to use with processes and tools to reclaim those dollars, return them to the bottom line, monitor and manage risk, and sustain savings year over year. An engineer with an MBA, Green Belt, CPSM, and CPSD certifications, Jane is writing her first book to share with other practitioners. In addition to running her business, she teaches Operations and Supply Chain Management courses in the California State University system and serves on the advisory board for the Operations & Supply Chain Management program at CSULB. In 2020, Jane co-founded the So-Cal SCRM Council for local executives focused on Supply Chain Risk Management which hosts an Annual Supply Chain Risk Symposium. A speaker/author, she offers bi-monthly Dynamic Dialog webinars and conducts workshops on a variety of topics. Her first book is due out in 2022
