Project Supply Chain/Procurement Management
Initial Post Requirement (20 points): Minimum 300 words. Choose one of the odd-numbered (#1, #3, #5, #7, or #9) discussion questions located at the end of Chapter 13, CPM 4e and write a discussion post in response. You must include at least one citation (in text) and a reference list in support of your discussion.
Response Post Requirement (10 points): Minimum 150 words. In the response post, you will provide a counter opinion or alternative point of view, not simply a reaffirmation of the initial discussion post. The response post can rely entirely on your experience or it can be a combination of your experience supplemented with information learned from the course reading materials and other references.
Assessment: You will be assessed on 1) content and 2) completeness (e.g., use of in-text citation of references used for summarizing, paraphrasing and quoting and other writing mechanics) and word count.
Guidance: See the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) website for guidance on citations and references. A copy of the Purdue OWL citation chart is provided in the course home page (Moodle). Discussion forum content can include a combination of material from literature and your own personal experience. Do some research and find papers that are associated with the topic of the question. It is recommended that you use the materials provided in this course and the assigned readings in CPM 4e and the PMBOK 6e for references when appropriate for the question you’ve chosen. Online blogs are not acceptable references.
