Presentation: Trends in Supply Chain Management and Logistics

After our diploma has been hung on the wall and the classes are behind us, continuing to stay up-to-date with what is happening in the industry is crucial so we can stay ahead of the curve and maintain our valuable knowledge base.

Over the previous three modules, you learned about leading-edge technology and trends in logistics and supply chain management. Put that to work for you. You will create a video presentation and accompanying handout. (Do not copy resources). Share insights into where you see logistics and supply chain management going and how a company can leverage this. The audience for this presentation will be all levels of logistics professionals. 

SLP Assignment

Presentation Handout

  • Create a handout to accompany the presentation. (Do not copy resources). It should be informative and targeted to the audience. It can be written in a professional conversational style, but since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite in the handout and add a reference list in APA format. The handout may be single-spaced and use fonts not allowed in APA.

Video Presentation

  • Video yourself presenting the 3- to 3½-minute video. Set your digital camera/phone to video your face and upper torso. This will allow the viewer to see your hand gestures and facial expressions. Do not read your script.

SLP Assignment Expectations

Please submit your assignment.

Handout: A Word document using the attached template (LOG302 SLP4 Handout) which contains a video link to your (3- to 3½-minute maximum) presentation if uploaded. Content beyond 3½ minutes will not be considered for grading. Video files should be uploaded to YouTube and the link shared. Set as public or unlisted, NOT PRIVATE. Unlisted means your video will not come up in search results and only those who know the link can view it, even if they do not have a YouTube account/username. If you need to upload the video file to the SLP 4 Dropbox due to security concerns or YouTube blackouts, please contact your professor in advance.
