What do you think are the next steps?

Source: You should identify a major news story and select a source covering a Global Supply Chain Management topic
Facts: You will identify the facts of the story (please be careful not to plagiarize). What are the facts, in your own words, with quotations where appropriate, that are appropriate to the topic and issues you wish to address. This should be approximately one paragraph long, which gives the reader enough information to understand the issues and commentary.
Status: What is the status of the case/topic that you chose to address? In other words, what is the status of the case at the time of your review (e.g., arrest stage, in the trial process, during sentencing, or on appeal). This information will come into play when you are writing your opinion and questions regarding the topic and issues. This section most likely requires just a sentence or two for the purpose of this assignment.
Issues: You are to assess global supply chain management issues/topics that you find of interest. Unlike case brief assignments, do not merely state the issues, but express why you find them to be of particular interest to you. They may not be contained directly in the substantive portion of the article as many of such “reports” merely raise topics and state facts, from which you will draw your own conclusions and questions.
Conclusions: What do you make of this case as it is reported? What do you think are the next steps? What do you think should happen in the case? What is the significance of it from a global perspective? This discussion section should be approximately a paragraph long and make up the substance of your paper.
