Assignment: SCM and Global SCM Paper

Once, the world seemed smaller, with businesses having scope within their national supply

chains. Now, business leaders need to consider the concept of glocalization, a hybrid word of

global and local, they need to “think globally and act locally.” It is important within the context

from both general theoretical and applied practical perspectives.
