“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 2015. Support is provided by the APICS Supply Chain Council and the John H. McConnell Chair in Business Administration at MSU.
The study examines factors in three areas:
- An organization’s business model
- An organization's management
- 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.
The results are in! Join APICS and Michigan State University (MSU) on September 15 for a webinar revealing some of the key findings of the "Supply Chain Management: Beyond the Horizon" research project. MSU's Patricia Daugherty and Judy Whipple will especially focus on information bout the core capabilities and competencies that will be required in the fast-moving and constantly changing global marketplace.
