External Communication Writing
Your assignment is to act as the Chief Logistics Officer in your company. Your task is to communicate in 1 to 2 pages, a relevant supply chain/logistics issue from a current real-world supply chain/logistics event with an important external supply chain partner Below are several (of many) links to websites that may help in formatting your business memos. https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/590/04/ https://www.universalclass.com/articles/writing/business-writing/how-to-write-an-effective-business-memo.htm https://www.instructionalsolutions.com/blog/memo-format http://www.writeexpress.com/business-memo.html https://learn.saylor.org/mod/page/view.php?id=5601 Effective submissions will clearly and concisely convey the intended message. They will also demonstrate understanding of a relevant marketing/supply chain issue and how that is related to course material. I know this is broad, and I am purposely not giving you more specific details or instructions, but more often than not, this is the way it happens in real world business situations. I believe one of the most difficult yet important transitions that you will make in moving from the college to professional setting is from being told exactly what to do and what is needed to be given a problem and asked to figure it out. I hope that this assignment will help to facilitate that transition.
