Supply Chain Research

Much of your research on a company's supply chain management will probably be found through internet searching. As you find sources, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Who is providing the information? 
    • Information from the company itself will have a different purpose than information from a news organization, trade publication, or supply chain management analyst
  2. How does this information fit into the bigger picture of the company's supply chain management strategy?
  3. What questions are not being answered by this source? 
    • You may need to do further research to get the whole picture. Are there links in the source that will take you to additional information?
