Description

With supply chains expanding in scope and scale globally, the academic and professional literature underlines the increasing role and importance of soft skills.

Traditionally, the supply chain literature has been geared towards hard skills including functional and technical skill sets with limited discussion of soft skills. Therefore, the purpose of our study was to assess and explore the demand for soft skills in the supply chain management (SCM) arena.
