Module 4 – SLP


The Session Long Project (SLP) requires writing an essay on a contemporary logistics topic facing your organization. As noted in the instructions for the Module 1 SLP Page, the SLP consists of two activities: (1) an assessment phase that asks you to explain and evaluate how the module topic applies to your Case study organization’s logistics operations, and (2) an improvement phase that asks you how the organization might better adjust logistics operations to respond to the module topic. Your essay should, whenever possible, integrate information from previous courses along with providing examples based on your own experiences to illustrate and support the points discussed in the essay.

For the Module 4 SLP, write a 1- to 2-page essay addressing the following:

Activity 1 (Assessment Phase)

Discuss the major operational threats your organization’s logistics functions face as a result of global terrorism.

Activity 2 (Improvement Phase)

How might your organization better mitigate the threats of terrorism relative to its logistics operations?

Armed forces personnel who believe they may have difficulty answering these questions because of security concerns should shift the scale of inquiry to the logistics risks the nation faces and how it might better mitigate vulnerability to these risks.
