Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

In this course we move beyond the systems levels of organizations and dyadic relationships to focus on managing and managing in chains, networks and systems of networks. This module aims to equip you with the necessary holistic way of thinking about examining, understanding and strategically improving global supply networks. Globally leading organizations not only know which other organizations are in their upstream supply networks or downstream customer / client networks, they strategically position themselves in those networks to align with their business strategy. Potential sources of risk that may impact on an organization may reside in indirect rather than direct relationships. Positive development of small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) may enhance innovation in a network. Using examples and case studies we will explore contemporary issues and approaches to being more strategic in networks. Global supply networks give rise to cultural, ethical and sustainability challenges as well as geographic and logistical particularities. Global trade agreements and countertrade account for a quarter of global business transactions.

      Understand context, functions, processes in a business and industrial environment and the impact of those factors on business performance

      Interact in a professional, responsible, effective and constructive way in a working environment, also motivating group members
