The Asia Case Research Centre (ACRC) Wins International Accolades

Congratulations to the ACRC research team for winning the First Place award in the prestigious SIM 2004 International Paper Competition. The Paper will be presented at the opening session of SIM's Annual Conference, SIMposium, to be held on September 13, 2004 in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

In a case entitled "Stepping up the Value Chain: TAL Apparel Limited", Dr Ali Farhoomand and Phoebe Ho, in collaboration with Dr. Harry Lee, Managing Director,TAL Apparel Limited, explain how a no-name Hong Kong-based apparel manufacturer has used Information Technology strategically to gain competitive advantage in the intensely cut-throat global apparel industry. The paper shows how the company has developed a sophisticated information management system to manage the supply chain of its major retailer customers, while at the same time, provide backward integration into its own production and material sourcing networks. The initiative carries significant strategic implications for industry practitioners, highlighting the way a traditionally weak member in a global industry can use IT to step up the value chain.
