Titel: Reduced Responsibility through Supply Chain Design

Much of supply chain research is concerned with improving efficiency and effectiveness. It includes issues such as strategic alignment, manufacturing location, and flow efficiency. Recently, various internal and external stakeholders have asserted pressure on companies to take increased responsibility for the effects that the supply chain has on society and the environment. This can be seen in legislation and through the actions of consumer advocacy groups. Unfortunately, many supply chains are poorly capable of living up to these demands, because the supply chains are not designed for responsibility – but for profit. As a result, non-compliance with responsibility guidelines has been considered to be the norm rather than the exception, and when responsibility is taken the supply chain is poorly capable of keeping costs in check. The lecture will give an insight into how supply chain design can dull the sense of responsibility for people in the supply chain, and highlight some specifically challenging areas inherent to global supply chains.
