Beyond the Horizon, an ongoing project conducted by a Michigan State University (MSU) supply chain research team, with the support of the Eli Broad College of Business and the APICS Supply Chain Council, investigates the current supply chain practices of global firms.
The intent is to determine what supply chain managers need to do to keep their firms competitive in the future.
The project has been named “Beyond the Horizon” to reflect its future-focused goals and to underscore the necessity for firms to remain attuned to the increasingly dynamic and complex internal and external environments in which they operate.
This white paper presents initial research insights from the project and introduces a conceptual model, named the bridge model, which can guide supply chain strategy development and decision making.
