Integrating Supply Chain With Business Strategy : Case Studies on Leveraging Supply Chain for Business
about this item
Integrating Supply Chain with Business Strategy is a book of 50 cases, edited by Professor Alan Waller, which look at the implementation of supply chain management into different businesses and the ensuing successes and failures. Supply chain should be a key source of competitive advantage and a supporter of business strategy. It is not just a function - it is now a value-add process in the boardroom.
The 50 case studies in Integrating Supply Chain with Business Strategy are written by leading practitioners and consultants for practitioners, academics, students and consultants. The cases cover: vision-led strategies with boardroom and cross-functional involvement; quantitative modelling; risk management; benefit tracking; continuous review and adaptation; sharing of learning and experiences. All the cases have a change management focus, and each one presents the situation, challenge, approach and key points for learning. These are country-specific, regional and global and cover all sectors.
