Identify, select, cite and reference quoteddefinitions of FIVE business activities from credible academic sources  from the list shown on Aula in a separate document.


2 separate sources are to be used for each activity/function

Combine the two quotes a single paraphrased statement along with appropriate citations as either parenthetical or narrative presentation.


Definition 1  Supply chain management refers to managing the sequence of suppliers providing goods and services so that the independent organisations work collaboratively for mutual gain” (Boddy, 2019, p. 674).
Definition 2  Supply chain management is the management of the relationships and flows between operations and processes; it is the topic that integrates all the issues concerning the delivery of products and services” (Slack & Brandon-Jones, 2018, p. 348).

Combine and Paraphrase While Boddy (2018) argues that supply chain managers are concerned primarily with managing relationships between their own company and independent suppliers for mutual benefit, Slack and Brandon-Jones (2018) provide a broader definition of supply chain management which emphasizes the inter-relationship between operations and processes, and the focus on delivering products and services to the end customer. 



As part of your study you will be involved in carrying out research and using this when writing up your coursework. It is important that you correctly acknowledge someone else’s writing, thoughts or ideas and that you do not attempt to pass this off as your own work.  Doing so is known as plagiarism.  It is not acceptable to copy from another source without acknowledging that it is someone else’s writing or thinking. This includes using paraphrasing as well as direct quotations. You are expected to correctly cite and reference the works of others. The Centre for Academic Writing provides documents to help you get this right. If you are unsure, please visit  You can also check your understanding of academic conduct by completing the Good Academic Practice quiz.

Self-plagiarism or reuse of work previously submitted

You must not submit work for assessment that you have already submitted (partially or in full), either for your current course or for another qualification of this and any other university, unless this is specifically provided for in your assignment brief or specific course or module information. Where earlier work by you is citable, ie. it has already been published/submitted, you must reference it clearly. Identical pieces of work submitted concurrently will also be considered to be self-plagiarism. Self-plagiarism is unacceptable because you cannot gain credit for the same work twice.

The University VLE includes a plagiarism detection system and assessors are experienced enough to recognise plagiarism when it occurs. Copying another student’s work, using previous work of your own or copying large sections from a book or the internet are examples of plagiarism and carry serious consequences. If you are a business student and joined Coventry University in September 2020 or later please use APA 7th edition referencing, if you joined prior to this date you may use APA or the existing Harvard Reference Style (Coventry version) that you are familiar with. Law students should use OSCOLA. Please be consistent in the referencing style that you use and use it correctly to avoid a case of plagiarism or cheating being brought. If you are unsure, please contact the Centre for Academic Writing, your Progress Coach or a member of the course team.

Return of Marked Work

You can expect to have marked work returned to you within 3 weeks. If for any reason, there is a delay you will be kept informed. Marks and feedback will be provided online. As always, marks will have been internally moderated only, and will therefore be provisional; your mark will be formally agreed later in the year once the external examiner has completed his / her review.
