Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper addresses digital systems and supply chain systems from an integrated or systemic perspective. Digital business and supply chains are the context; we consider their increasing influence on management theory and practice, their own interconnectedness, and through this context students will be exposed to practice in real-life case studies and in their own group and class interactions.

This core paper within several qualifications introduces the areas of study and provides skills that will help your learning in future study and careers.

Every day we encounter and are part of systems. This paper considers two systems: Digital Business systems and Supply Chain systems, from an integrated or systems perspective. Integrated thinking is in stark contrast to our desire to take things apart and examine them separately. As a result the study and practice of management is typically structured along functional lines with separate departments of accounting, finance, marketing, HR and operations, among others. In this ‘silo’ approach, the parts are not integrated into the whole.

In this paper Digital Business and Supply Chains are the context; we will consider their increasing influence on management theory and practice, their own interconnectedness, and through this context students will be exposed to practice—in real-life case studies and in their own group and class interactions.

In this paper we desire that students, tutors and teachers will journey together through some new territory and explore approaches not previously considered.
