SUPPLY CHAIN LEARNING RESOURCES LIST
As the instructor for this MBA class, you must supply the reading materials for your students to understand the current trends and issues for supply chain management. What are professional informative articles, literature reviews, and empirical articles that are best suited to teach your material and why?
Appropriate resources may include textbooks, scholarly research articles, reports on practitioner research, or videos. The key is selecting materials that are current, address the aspects of a topic you want to focus on, and are the appropriate level for your students. You should also be considering how the resources will fit together collectively to provide your students with a comprehensive view and understanding of what you are trying to teach.
InstructionsReview the resources from the Topic Exploration Quickstart Literature Guide: Global Operations & Supply Chain Management. This guide presents current and relevant scholarly, academic, and practitioner resources related to supply chain management. Your first step for this assignment is to select five appropriate resources that your MBA students would engage with to help learn the baseline supply chain management knowledge they need, as well as illustrate the three important current trends and issues that you have identified to teach your students (that is, which current trends or issues you discussed in your welcome video).
As you are selecting the five resources, remember to consider:
Relevance to the current trends, issues, and best practices related to supply chain management or foundational concepts and frameworks related to supply chain management.
Relevance of information to the concepts you are planning to teach.
Variety of resource types: Have you selected a mix of textbook readings, peer-reviewed journal articles, professional practitioner articles, and/or multimedia?
The planned use of the resource in the course and what objective it will specifically teach your MBA students.
The degree to which the resources fit with the adult learning framework, Bloom’s taxonomy, and personal teaching philosophy you are applying to your course. Refer to your course readings when considering this item.
Once you have identified your five resources, write a 3–5 page analysis in which you address the following within the context of the MBA course you are teaching:
Summarize the major takeaways of current trends and issues in supply change management and/or foundational supply chain management concepts and frameworks.
Synthesize how the selected resources illustrate the three selected current trends or issues in supply chain management to be taught in your MBA course.
Explain how the chosen resources are appropriate for your MBA students and supportive of the course objectives.
Reflect on the degree to which the resources and your planned use of them fit with the adult-learning framework and personal teaching philosophy you are applying to your course.

The design of specific courses in any curriculum must be purposeful in terms of what is taught, how it is taught, and how all the course components fit together. For a supply chain management course targeted at international business (IB) students, one key purpose is to understand how competitiveness is developed across the extended enterprise, rather than within the confines of individual companies. This “winning together” view helps foster capabilities for connectedness and cooperation in IB environments typically characterized by geographic dispersion and cultural dissimilarities.
