This assignment has many benefits. First, it requires a search of indexing and abstracting databases from the online library to find an article that meets the specified criteria (must be related to the course content). It also emphasizes what a scholarly article is; to discern between scholarly and non-scholarly writing; to condense someone else’s lengthy argument into a concise report; to think critically about what has been read by assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the research; and, thus, to become participants in the discussions regarding the Supply Chain and Logistics profession.
Content / Subject Knowledge: (40 points)Accurate and complete information is presented in a concise, logical sequence. Topic goes well beyond knowledge level of audience. Based upon a peer-reviewed article published within past 6-months to a year, thestudent will discuss three important facts the author uses to support thesis,explain or correlate the facts with facts from course content, use in text citation from course reading to show connections to this article, valuate the resources provided with the article. Are there resources provided with the article? Are they recent?Describe the strengths and weaknesses of the information presented as it applies to theprofessions. Critically evaluate the information in the article. Is there bias or faulty reasoning? Evaluate the information for truth.Bring in outside sources to support your analysis and review.What are others saying about the same topic?You must support claims of both fact and faulty reasoning. You need to have in-text citation within each slide or where you use other’s information.
Organization of Ideas/Format: (20 points)Presentation includes clear, organized significance (greater context? why should we care?),title slidewith the standard title page information,introduction slide- title of article, author?s names, discuss the author?s thesis on this slide-1 – slide,body slides (as many as are needed to hit all the criteria)(3-facts slides, the strengths-1 slideand weaknesses-1 slide, how this applies to our profession – 1-slide, what other authors-1 slideand research is saying, how this research relates back to our textbook)-1 slide,bias/faulty reasoning -1-slide, evaluate the resources within the article – 1-slide conclusion slide(what was most important ? main points)-1-slideand then lastly areference slide-including all the references used. Each information slide outlines or supplements a major point or details previous point. Do notvisually overload or contain small font ? all text clearly visible. Thirty to fifty words per slide, use bullet-type statements – then explain further, if need or you used only a direct quote. Completely logical sequence of ideas.
Writing Conventions – Grammar/Mechanics/APA 7 Formatting: (20 points)Student demonstrates an excellent command of grammar, as well as presents research in a clear and concise writing style.

The aim of the study is to investigate the effect of Information Systems Usage on Supply Chain. Information
systems involve creating specific environment for the fulfilment of organizational strategy. However, information
system affords an organization an enormous benefit that materializes in the long-run. Unfortunately, realization of
information system is also accompanied with risk which mostly deters management from taking the initiative
hence missing out on the intended benefits of implementing information system usage in organizations. Without
overemphasizing the crucial role played by information system in the supply chain performance, this study seeks
to focus on investigating the effect of Explorative Information Systems Usage and Exploitative Information
Systems Usage on Supply Chain Performance. Even though Information Systems is an increasingly important
element of academic research and discussions, there seems to be no consensus in the extant literature on the
impact of information systems (IS) usage on the supply chain. Most importantly the study investigates moderating
functions of supply chain integration (SCI) and managerial commitment (MC). Survey instruments were collected
from manufacturing companies in Ghana. Simple random sampling was used to select 100 companies of which
1,300 respondents were identified, and questionnaires were administered. The study showed that Managerial
Commitment, Explorative Information Systems Usage, and Exploitative Information Systems Usage impact
significantly and positively on Supply Chain Performance. Additionally, the findings concluded that Supply Chain
Integration, specifically operational integration significantly and positively mediates the relationship between the
usage of Information Systems and Performance of Supply Chain. In this regard, these results imply that
operational integration between partners can help influence the performance of supply chains.
