Select 1 issue to managing supply chains and how it applies to any key learning take-away presented by Ferdow (including facts presented in the article). What did you learn from reading the article and which (pick 1 or maybe 2) of the 8 issues related to managing supply chains which applies. Your discussion response, uploaded here on Blackboard, should be 100 words or less. Deliver your point succinctly and accurately remembering, A-I-D-A (Attention – Interest – Desire – Action).
For example, my response: The OM text emphasizes “The Need to Manage the Supply Chain” including “The Need to Improve Operations.” Ferdows notes the “Challenge of Hysteresis.” Operations Managers should be vigilant in both assessment and evaluation of the supply chain and its environment so as to minimize hysteresis. The sooner a challenge is identified, the sooner a solution can be determined. Managers must actively practice OM.”
