Assoc. Prof Jamal El Baz, Ibn Zohr University
Reflecting on COVID-19 outbreak and some SCM issues
In his Linkedin post published on 2 May 2020, Dr. El Baz highlights and discusees two issues worth of further practical and theoretical investigation regarding supply chain management.
The first one is related to the short term post-covid-19 era and the distribution of vaccines, and the second one is related to organizational and national cultures in supply chain risk management (SCRM). El Baz notes, for instance, that when countries familiar with the outbreak of previous pandemics (e.g. SARS, MERS) adapted faster to COVID-19 prevention measures, also the reactions in companies in terms of SCRM probably varied accordingly.
