    Please begin this case by carefully reading two papers; Chenowith et al. (2012) and Sarnovsky (2015). Here's an overview of them.
    Chenowith and her coauthors (2012) are organizational scientists at the not-for-profit RAND corporation, a "think tank" that began life as a quasi-governmental agency. Their paper examines initiatives in supplier relationship management undertaken by the U.S. Air Force Materiel Command.

    Dr. Martin Sarnovsky is a professor at the Technical University of Koice, Slovakia; a country that was a client state of the Soviet Union before that communist empire broke up. A chapter of his online textbook (excerpted here) discusses supplier management. It is a detailed, useful treatment.

    Carefully compare and contrast these two papers in 3-4 Pages.
    1. What points do both of them make?
    2. What points does one emphasize, the other not? Explain. (Hint: Tables with side-by-side comparisons would be helpful.)
