APICS and Michigan State University in Partnership SCM: Beyond the Horizon • Firms and the supply chains they operate are becoming more dynamic and turbulent. • In response, firms are seeking to transform their strategies to create and maintain competitive advantages in this new world. • Creating a strategic supply chain requires a new approach to working with their supply chains – an approach that is both integrative and agile.
APICS and Michigan State University in Partnership SCM: Beyond the Horizon • This two-year study will explore how firms are trying to convert their supply chains from being strategically decoupled, price-driven to strategically coupled, value-driven. • Focus will be on the business model rather than strategy since this defines the firm’s methods for doing business.
