Strategic Supply Chain Management Report based on the following scenario
You are employed as a Management Consultant by a corporate organisation of your choice. You are involved in developing the Supply Chain Strategy, to support your
organisation’s competitive advantage strategy. You have also been involved in the organisations strategic review, which has resulted in a major strategic option being
decided by your organisations board of directors.
For the purpose of this assignment you can choose any scenario you wish, but students are expected to demonstrate an application of strategic decisions. For example
you may decide to relocate the organisations manufacturing or distribution operation; or outsource aspects of the organisations operations, or decide to expand the
organisations competitive presence globally, by market expansion or diversification.
In line with your chosen strategic option, you have been asked to produce a 1500 word strategic management report [in report format], to inform the board of a
recommended strategic supply chain strategy for your organisation. This will include the likely implications and justified research informed recommendations,
