EMERGING ECONOMIES 2 Avittathur, B., & Jayaram, J. (2016). Supply chain management in emerging economies. Decision (0304-0941), 43 (2), 117-124. doi:10.1007/s40622-016-0130-8 Statement of the Author’s Purpose The main purpose or idea of this article, which the authors discuss, relates to the shortage of research on the topic of emerging economies and the impact that these economies have on supply chain management. According to the authors, the emerging economies with the most impact on the global supply chain management are India, China, and Brazil (Avittathur & Jayaram, 2016). The article focuses on two areas of importance regarding emerging economies impact on the global supply chain, which are opportunities and challenges (Avittathur & Jayaram, 2016). “Research indicates that, although globalization is a trend, natural resources- based supply chains are often more geographically bounded and susceptible to local social demands than other supply chains”[ CITATION Sil15 \l 1033 ]. Therefore, research suggest that the supply chains faces barriers to sustainability in developing within emerging economies. Consequently, these barriers lead to complexity and uncertainty within the supply chain making for a turbulent business environment. The authors suggest that there is a substantial gap on how infrastructural issues and culture could possibly affect the success of the supply chain within emerging economies (Avittathur & Jayaram, 2016). Application of Supply Chain Management Theory Relevant to Article In today’s global business environment, there is a shift from developed economies to emerging economies. The primary reason for this shift is weak performance by developed economies. Therefore, supply chain management configuration has become increasingly volatile.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
