Supply Chain Management of Nike
A 6 page paper discussing the case of Nike’s early-century missteps, particularly that which involved upsetting its own supply chain. Nike does not have the luxury of becoming arrogant on the scale that IBM did in the early 1990s. IBM found it was not indispensable to its customers as it had believed; evidence from Nike’s constant struggle with those that overtake the leading position in the industry (i.e., New Balance and Adidas) indicates that Nike should already be painfully aware of that fact. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
2002 until 2005 Nike Stock Changes
A 5 page paper discussing changes in Nike's stock and comparing it with that of Reebok and Skechers. Reebok has grown slowly but steadily over the past three years as Skechers has struggled with managerial problems. Nike had been stalled for some time as investors decided what to do with the ethical charges against it. When Nike finally realized that those problems would not just "go away" and began addressing them, the company's fortunes improved right away. It probably will not grow as rapidly in the future, but Reebok and certainly Skechers will have a difficult time catching up to Nike. Includes 2 charts and 2 tables. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
