Editorial Editorial: How to deal with the human factor in supply chain management? Supply chain management (SCM) is an intricate part of the business world at present. As organizations serve the global consumer or user, supply chains must reach a wide range of markets. Markets range from dense megacities to sparsely populated rural communities. Despite this range, supply chain employees must determine how to efficiently, effectively and sustainably deliver products and services to all their customers. The complexities that exist within these various supply chains create a myriad of difficulties for supply chain decision-makers.
