Methodology

The syllabus lists the assigned readings and cases for each day. It is expected that all readings for the day will be completed before coming to class in order to improve the discussion.
Class participation. Everyone in the class is expected to participate in the class discussions. Participation will be evaluated based on relevant contributions and thoughtful questions.
Case analysis. Each team of students is expected to prepare a case report for the assigned cases. The report should consist in a power point presentation (which may be used in class during the case discussion). The reports should be uploaded into the learning area by 1:00 pm of the day before class. All reports received after 1:00 pm will not be taken into account for the final mark.
Final project. Each team of students will prepare a final project. The analysis should be no longer than 10 pages double spaced with 12 point type. The analysis should focus on the supply chain issues discussed in class with some overall discussion of the company situation. Avoid rehashing the information in the case. The final project (document and power point) should be uploaded into the learning area.
* Peer Evaluation. At the end of the semester each team member will evaluate the other members of the team. This evaluation will be used to assign the teams' mark to each member of the team.
