The popularity of the television show "Survivor" demonstrates the innate human desire to compete and win. The contestants have to develop a strategy which best utilizes their individual skills and capabilities to work in a team environment, and individually, to overcome obstacles and defeat their opponents. A case can be made that supply chain professionals face this survival situation every day as they seek to provide their organizations with the proper resources to compete effectively.
