I had the pleasure of attending the University Alliance event in Milwaukee last week, a great program attended by over 100 academic educators and practitioners. With the news of the SAP Business ByDesign Feater Pack 3.0 update later this month, alternatives to integrate a cloud-based ERP environment with the OnDemand tools (such as Carbon OnDemand used for basic green and footprint assessment) become more real.
My working model for a sustainable business curriculum includes one overview course (call it the “101” course) and up to four additional functional specialties:
– Procurement and Green Purchasing
– Sustainable Supply Chain and Logistics
– Sustainable Reporting and Performance Management
The capstone possibility would include a full simulation. That gets to the interesting part. I will be speaking with the folks at Cal State Chico who have deep experience in this development, there may be some opportunity to collaborate / co-innovate on that topic.
More to follow on this journey. Thanks to all for the comments and feedback.
