I’m in ERP consulting at the moment, focused on manufacturing & supply chain. If I want to eventually transition into more of a tech strategy role, would a CSCP be worth having in my belt?

CSCP was the biggest waste of my time. Great for someone with no SCM background trying to land an industry job. Can’t really see it translating well to tech strategy

I second this, APICS certa are good if you are trying to switch industry or if your consulting work kept you too high level amd you are tying to switch to industry while looking competent.

But tech strategy is definitely not what you use cscp for.

Hi Fishes,

I have 5yoe. I have worked in secondary research & consulting for 2 years and than moved to quality assurance of credit ratings.
I don't have any knowledge of MS Excel and PowerPoint. Since my work was never related tools, I never get the opportunity to learn and implement them on real life scenarios. Apart form this I also don't have knowledge about any special tools. Basically my skill sets are limited to process knowledge, SOP's and SLA's.
I can work on Factiva and Capital IQ.
