I am starting a business and had very little idea on inventory management. Laurence did a great job explaining the fundamentals and tools I can use to measure my performance and manage my inventory better. Concepts were clear and easy to understand. I don't think you really need any prior knowledge. Recommended and will take a future course!

Toyyab S.

Fantastic course! Laurence was engaging from the very first lecture. The examples used, his lively presentation style and goofy jokes make for an very entertaining watch, all the while covering a lot of content in detail. I particularly enjoyed the examples about the Rolls Royce airplane jets and barrels of whiskey! I will definitely be signing up for more of his courses. The content is clearly and concisely illustrated in a very engaging manner. I could not recommend this course more highly!
