Part of Future of Work Institute’s Thursday Seminar Series
Associate Professor Richard Oloruntoba (Curtin University) will present a high-level overview of key principles and current issues in global supply chain management and logistics. This serves as a contextual background to the second part of the presentation - a high level synthesis of the research problems and questions Richard Oloruntoba’s research programme aims to solve; while the last part of the presentation demonstrates a link to the work of FOWI, and espouses FOWI – SCM collaboration opportunities.
