Assignment Brief
You are starting your new role as a junior supply chain consultant at a multinational consulting corporation. As part of your job, you and your team need to carry out some research activity to prepare to each consultation.  The first project you are involved in is about the implementation of sustainable supply chain practices for a variety of clients. As a junior consultant, you need to conduct research to gain understanding of the potential challenges of the project, detecting issues, and investigating ways to resolve them.

Therefore, before meeting your client, you and your team need to conduct a research activity to identify the potential barriers of implementing the sustainable supply chain practices and how to overcome those barriers.  In building the case study you are to complete the attached template (see CW2 – Sustainable Supply Chain Practices Template). More specifically, you are to: Present and critically discuss the concept of sustainable supply chain management in the current scenario (max 250 words). Explain the process that leads to the key words’ selection for your research (max 250 words).

It is required to list all the key words used. Review a series of peer reviewed journal articles and summarise your findings in the table provided within the template. Each member of the group needs to review 2 journal papers. That means the number of papers to be reviewed in a group is calculated as the number of team members * 2 journal papers = Total number of papers to be reviewed. For example, a group of 5 students will review 2×5=10 papers, while a group of 6 will review 12 papers. To conclude your report, you’ll be using the information gathered from the analysis of the literature, to critically reflect on the background of the project. Therefore, you are to: Critically discuss the existing barriers to the implementation of sustainable supply chain practices.  Identify, explain and critically discuss viable solutions to overcome the barriers identified.
