The growing global economy has redefined the dynamics of competition for modern organisations, with product life-cycles shortening and worldwide commercial competition increasing. Successful competition today depends on organisations adopting state-of-the art, effective supply chain management (SCM) strategies. This unit provides students with an understanding of the SCM strategies and the eBusiness technologies/applications which organisations and entire supply chains can use to become world-class and globally competitive. It also covers challenges and opportunities such as environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility in the supply chain.
