Supply Chain Management and Logistics yet is still a rather new management asset in Vietnam, companies are more and more realizing its usefulness, considering it as one of their competitive factors in doing business as well. Today, the word “optimizing” can be found in any successful story of a company. Effectively implementing Supply Chain Management & Logistics knowledge can help to achieve goals.
Moreover, that the term “Supply chain management” has appeared more and more frequently may lead to a conclusion that this term is clear understood and implemented. However, in the reality, the access to SCM is different from companies, and even among managers in one company. Some managers have realized that their company still lacks of some competitive competencies, necessary for the company’s success. One of these competencies is the clear understanding of Supply chain management.
