What Is Supply Chain Management? Arizona State University’s 12-Part Series: Part 2

What is Supply Chain ManagementIn Module 2 of the excellent “What is Supply Chain Management” series, produced by ASU and the W. P. Carey School of Business, purchasing and procurement functions are introduced. It is quite brief – only a little over 3 minutes long – but is very effective, and really, unforgettable.

The producers write:

Part 2 of 12 Part introduction to purchasing, part homage to the 1970s Time for Timer You are What You Eat public service announcement, this module explains the critical role supply management plays in producing high quality products and services. Procurement managers require a specific set of varied skills to ensure your supply chain has a continuous flow of healthy materials from dependable suppliers.

This is the 2nd installment in Arizona State University’s twelve-part introduction to supply chain management video series developed by Eddie Davila, Jeff Hough, Randy Cates, Dawn Feldman, Dan Ichikawa, Ian Schmoel, and Matt Hardy. ASU, the W. P. Carey School of Business, and the Supply Chain Management Department are proud and happy to share this video series with supply chain management departments, supply chain instructors, career specialists in high schools and universities, as well as industry leaders in an effort to inspire a new generation of supply chain management professionals across the country and around the world.
