Within a supply chain many supplier-buyer relationships exist. Even though supply chain management aims to take a high level view, these dyadic relationships form the basis of the supply chain and therefore should be the focus of a supply chain analysis.
The negotiation of the terms of these relationships defines the structure of the supply chain and can affect the power and profit distribution within the supply chain itself.
So, this week we’ll have a closer look at negotiations in the supply chain using a 2008 paper by Frederik Zachariassen.

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.

This week I finally finished the first complete version of my dissertation. All graphs and tables now are now built using the same template and I finally decided on the final typeface: For the main texts it’s Gyre Bonum which is built on the Bookman typeface) and for the headlines I choose Bera Serif a nice slab serif font.
