You will conduct a 30-minute interview with a business professional who has experience with SCM and Global SCM. During the interview, ask permission to submit their first name, last name, and email address as elements of your interview summary, in case your professor wants to check in with them on their thoughts of the interview. As the person conducting the interview, you should dress professionally for the interview, and be prepared with some initial research of the person you are interviewing (review their LinkedIn profile) as well as, their organization (online research, corporate website, etc.). The point is to show up as a business professional, and to be properly prepared and engaged for the interview. You will be asking the questions, and you should be prepared to be an active listener and to ask pertinent follow-on questions. The three main question sets you are to ask, allowing about 10 minutes of discussion each, are:
Question Set 1: (SCM Theory) Glocalization is a hybrid word of global and local, meaning, “think globally and act locally.” How does your organization implement glocalization? What trend do you foresee, as far as glocalization, within your industry in the next 5-years? Do you envision any radical changes in your industry that would drive changes to the theory or strategy of supply chain?
