Impact of Technology Innovation and New 
Business Models on
Supply Chains 

Growing overseas require access to markets, capital and competitive differentiation. In the context of Asia, suppliers are usually much less technologically sophisticated compared to their overseas buyers in major world markets. As new technologies transform business models and 
automate business processes, traditional supply chains in sourcing, manufacturing, distribution
and logistics are being affected, with clear threats of disintermediation.

This course will provide frameworks for analysing technology impacts on business, and examine
key trends in new technologies and how these will impact supply chains. Group project work will
involve brainstorming on transforming company supply chains through implementing new
technologies and business models at strategic and operational levels.
