eIDB: LOG 21

Logistics for the 21st Century

Designed from our successful LOG 21, a fully digital eIDB LOG 21 program has been developed to meet the demands of our clients. Now you can attend an updated LOG 21 that would have taken place in-person in Chapel Hill and even receive your Certificate via our learning management system and video conferencing platforms. This asynchronous and live collaborative learning environment promises to be very rewarding and will meet the high educational standards that IDB programs have always provided.

Key Topics

  • Technology and innovation
  • Logistics, risk, and the organization
  • Strategy formulation and implementation
  • Process analysis
  • Wireless applications
  • Department of Defense budget primer

Digital Program Format:

A Revised Digital LOG 21

Offered in a new and interactive digital version, you will work both asynchronously through an online learning management system and synchronously with the faculty and others through video conferencing and additional online tools. eIDB Log 21 utilizes collaborative digital tools, condensed content segments, and alternating formats to effectively capitalize on the new online environment and resulting learning potential. 

Self-paced asynchronous content will provide background knowledge to prepare you for the analysis, integration and application of the synchronous faculty sessions. In the “live” sessions, you’ll engage directly with our talented faculty and guest speakers who will guide you through their latest lectures, research, case studies and simulations. You will develop actionable takeaways which will facilitate your professional growth.  

The IDB Directors and Team understand the complexities of our customers’ environments and utilize the latest online capabilities and techniques to deliver world class. In addition, virtual discussion and project groups, as well as the IDB’s large family of alumni, will connect you to a wide group of peers and help you build a strong network. Individuals and teams are encouraged to attend. Participation by multiple personnel from your unit, agency or company will foster teamwork and amplify the program’s impact on your organization. 


  • Learn to maximize results for logistics operations by applying best practices and innovative thinking
