Assignment 2: Course Project—CSR and Supply Chain Performance Metrics

Continue with the scenario of working as a logistics manager for the discount retailer you chose in Week 1. This week, you will focus on the corporate social responsibility and supply chain performance. If the discount retailer does not have any information available on any of the parts under the task section, provide a “recommendation” to the retailer. Please note in your paper that it is a “recommendation.” If you speak to what the discount retails has in place, the assumption is that it is its current state. Most retailers publish this type of information on their websites or in their annual reports for investors.

Task 1

  • Research the corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.
  • Describe the retailer’s CSR initiatives in detail.
  • Critically examine the retailer’s CSR initiatives. Suggest improvements.
  • Cover the types of supply chain ethics the company has executed.
  • Discuss how the company handles dispute and claims.

Task 2

  • Research supply chain performance at the discount retailer.
  • Describe the retailer’s performance measurement system in detail.
  • Cover the key performance indicators as they relate to the supply chain.
  • Describe what the balanced scorecard looks like or would look like for the retailer’s supply chain performance measurement.
  • Critically examine the retailer’s supply chain performance measurement system. Identify problems and suggest solutions.
