Case Study and Conference - This Week in Supply Chain Management (14 / 2012)
This week I received my first full-version feedback on my PhD-thesis. A big thanks to my reviewer! Luckily I do not have too many adjustments to make, so I will use time during the easter holidays to commit the changes. I hope to be done by Tuesday, and I already got an appointment with my Professor on Wednesday, to officially hand over the dissertation.
