Supply Chain Management: Beyond the Horizon

Supply Chain Management: Beyond the Horizon is an industry-focused initiative with research and educational components conducted by Michigan State University's (MSU) Department of Supply Chain Management, with involvement from MSU Executive Development Programs and the Broad College of Business. The study is being carried out over a two-year period, with initial results to be published in 2014. Support is being provided by the APICS Foundation and the John H. McConnell Chair in Business Administration at MSU.

The study examines factors in three areas:

  • an organization’s business model
  • management
  • and the interrelationship between the business model and supply chain operations

The study will identify and examine the capabilities necessary for strategic supply chain success, thus redefining the future of global supply chain management.
