Global supply chain

A modern supply chain is a dynamic network of great complexity. Thus, organisations should strive for developing supply chain strategies, configuring supply chains to maximise performance and coping with technological changes.

Based on the above statement, you are asked to choose a sector/industry (e.g., food, technology, healthcare, retail, services, automotive), and critically discuss: (i) what is the design and implementation of supply chain strategies within the sector (ii) how do the organisations configure their supply chains through collaboration, lean principles and agility, and, (iii) how advanced technology (e.g., big data analytics, Internet of Things, cloud computing) are utilised by companies within the sector to maintain their competitive advantage.
