Question 2 (200-250 words)
Based on the course material we have covered, find a Forbes article or video (within the last 3 years) that deals with some of the key ideas in the class (such as operations, procurement, supply chain alignment with business strategy, etc.). Summarize the article (or video), relate it to a course concept or key point, and discuss how the actual practice (as demonstrated by the Forbes Material) relates to the theory presented in our course. Provide the citation and location of where you found the article.
