Effective Supplier Management

SCM is a cornerstone of modern world commerce. For that reason, interest in the subject is well-nigh universal, among both practitioners and academics, and in private, public, not-for-profit, and governmental organizations.Please begin this case by carefully reading two papers; Chenowith et al. (2012) and Blanchard (2009). Here’s an overview of them.Chenowith and her coauthors (2012) are organizational scientists at the not-for-profit RAND corporation, a “think tank” that began life as a quasi-governmental agency. Their paper examines initiatives in supplier relationship management undertaken by the U.S. Air Force Materiel Command. Blanchard (2009) is a business journalist writing for Industry Week, a civilian website. His paper provides a good, concise summary of SCM from a non-military (or at least, not specifically military) point of view.Case AssignmentThe Case assignment for this module is to carefully compare and contrast these two papers. What points do both of them make? What points does one emphasize, the other not? Explain. (Hint: Tables with side-by-side comparisons would be helpful.)Assignment Expectations• Write a well-constructed essay. Feel free to use tables and bulleted lists, if appropriate.• The readings may not provide specific answers. If not, you will need to “fill in the gaps,” using your understanding of the material presented in the Module, and the background sources.• Style and format must comply with the Writing Style Guide. (TUI Guide, n.d.) This is not an English course; however, errors in spelling, grammar and style will be penalized.• Provide citations and references. Use of APA style is encouraged, but not required. Please see the TUI Writing Guide, or visit the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL, 2015).• There are no page requirements. Write what you need to write, neither more nor less.References:Blanchard, D.
