African Institute for Supply Chain Research (AISCR) is a leading Pan African research institute that conducts innovative research on supply chain management to support continental wide sustainable development and inclusive growth.

Building supply chain management and leadership capability sits at the heart of AISCR. AISCR is positioned to play an important role in ensuring business executives and public sector executives who are able to develop a broader view, and constructively employ smart and well researched supply chain management instruments, both locally and internationally to enhance quality and margin management. Through this, AISCR enables the building of competitive institutions so that business can responsibly generate the growth that the continent desperately needs.

AISCR’s offerings are tailored to individual clients and consortia to effect behaviour change through the acquisition of knowledge and skills. This impact is critical to the design, delivery and assessment of AISCR programmes. We create transformative and unique well researched offerings that equip clients to take up the challenges of leading to successfully drive their institutions forward in the context of a dynamic and changing global environment.
