The volatile and uncertain world we currently live in creates enormous challenges for companies and their supply chains. Change is the only certainty in business every day, and in order to adapt supply chains successfully, a thorough understanding of its dynamics and interdependencies is necessary. Mastering the Supply Chain presents a powerfully different way of learning that puts the reader at the heart of a life-like situation so that they experience the impact of every decision they make – not just in their own ‘silo’ but across the business.
Integrating theory with practice, the book aims to create a cross-functional mindset in both students and practitioners. It provides a wide overview of supply chain concepts and sets out what companies need to overcome in order to find practical ways of implementing them. The reader is continuously asked to reflect on the choices they make as they experience first-hand the many challenges that good supply chain management presents.
Laura M Meade, Director of International Programs and Professor of Supply Chain Practice, Neeley School of Business, Texas Christian University commended the book saying, ‘Ingeniously incorporates knowledge and practice of the fundamentals. The diagrams are especially descriptive, and the combination of theory with experiential learning is a game-changer in the quest to educate students and professionals how to manage supply chains in an ever-changing world.’
