Thank you for completing the first week of the course.

I hope you found it informative and it has achieved its objective of starting to get you to think about supply chains differently. Whilst you have discovered there are no standard definitions of supply chain and supply chain management, you perhaps have a better understanding not only of what it means to you, their importance, and the way in which they support society.

I look forward to reading your supply chain stories on the mychainreaction story page, and the supply chains that you pictorially build through the #HowThingsGet2U cohort challenge.
