7.1. MA in Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Interest in Logistics and Supply chain Managements is growing because of: Ever – increasing market competition globally; acceptance of a wider focus for evaluating organization change; and declining incidence of vertical integration as a result of which efficiency and innovation can no longer be solely an internal management function rather it should consider early involvement of customers and suppliers from product design to delivery to ultimate customers.
Supply Chain management deals with the management of materials and information resources across a network of organizations and relationship of trading partners that are involved in the design, production and delivery process. It recognizes the inter-connections between materials and information resources within and across organizational boundaries and seeks systematic improvements in the way these resources are structured, used and controlled.
In developing countries particularly with reference to Ethiopia, there are different manufacturing, services and construction sectors engaged in producing products and rendering services. Accompanying their products, the notion of supply chain management as a strategy could be seen as fragmented and not integrated in their activities to supply chain members horizontally, yet they have to compete in the global market with firm’s producing similar products which are integrated with their supply chain partners. Because of fragmented supply chain structure in Ethiopian firms, they merely do not have competitive advantage in the market (local or global); as a result their performance is weak. On the other hand, manufacturing firms in Africa among which Ethiopian manufacturing firms are one and Ethiopia is a member, are currently integrating in to regional markets and development cooperation, for example, COMESSA (Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa), & NEPAD (New Partnership for African Development),with similar objective as NAFTA and EU markets. This politically motivated regional integration presupposes internal preparation of local firms to fully cooperate and compete with similar firms in the same region. Before integration in to regional markets, firms locally need to be integrated within the organization’s functions fully, develop their own core competency and extend to their partners before integrating their operation in to the regional and then global market.
The need for managing supply chain and adopting supply chain management practice through integration with partners is inevitable for Ethiopian firms, because it is not only a source of competitive advantage for these firms but also to survive even as followers as the firms are already in the global market competing with global companies.
