Editorial Reviews

Review

The Handbook of Global Supply Chain Management is no light reference, but a solid pick for college-level libraries strong in holdings pertaining to global supply chains. . . .Attention to well-rounded detail and depth from different approaches makes The Handbook of Global Supply Chain Management a critical acquisition for any serious college-level collection offering grad students and researchers detailed perspectives on the subject. (Midwest Book Review 2006-12-05)

Providing such a book is important for at least three reasons:

First, doctoral/postgraduate students must, in the course of their dissertation projects, provide a literature review of what they have researched within a given topic/area. The manner in which papers are referenced here makes it possible to conduct a detailed investigation of their approaches, such as research frameworks, methodologies, applied theories and empirical observations. Thus, this book aims to provide postgraduate and research students, faculty, practitioners an overview of what has been researched in the recent past in some important areas of SCM.

Second, providing such an overview also makes it possible for the professional managers to understand the trends and new development in methodologies and approaches having practical relevance.

Third, such a contribution makes it possible to identify gaps between current, state-of-the-art thinking within
SCM and the themes actually researched in.

(Dr. Md. Mamun Habib International Journal of Supply Chain Management 2013-07-23)

Format: Hardcover
Here in a single volume is a wealth of information and counsel provided by many of the world's foremost authorities on global supply chain management. The material has been selected and edited with meticulous care by John T. Mentzer, Matthew B, Myers, and Theodore P. Stank who also collaborated on Chapter 1 ("Why Global Supply Chain Management?") and contributed to others. They provide this definition of Supply Chain Management (SCM) which was devised by the Supply Chain Research Group at the University of Tennessee in 2004: "the systematic, strategic coordination of the traditional business functions within a particular company and across businesses within the supply chain, for the purposes of improving the long-term performance of the individual companies and the supply chain as a whole." After the introductory chapter, the material is organized as follows:

Part I: Understanding Global Supply Chains

Overview: The contributors focus on strategy, assessment of the global environment, value and customer service management, demand management, knowledge management, and process orientation.

Part II: Managing the Functions

Overview: The contributors focus on management of marketing and sales, product, operations, integrated logistics, inventory, transportation, warehouse, and personnel.

Part III: Resource Management

Overview: The contributors focus on the lean supply chain ("The path to Excellence"), financial and risk management, and interpretation systems (i.e. knowledge, strategy, and performance).

Part IV: Managing the Relations

Overview: The contributors focus on relationship management, logistics outsourcing, international sourcing (i.e.

Format: Hardcover
The Handbook of Global Supply Chain Management is an excellent book. My interest in it stems from the fact that it contains a chapter on risk management. It was after reading Manuj and Mentzer's articles on 'Global Supply Chain Risk Management' and 'Global Supply Chain Risk Management Strategies' that I came across this book, when searching for more papers from Mentzer and/or Manuj, and naturally, I decided to see if there was something on supply chain risk in it. There was.

Deja vu

Unfortunately, the chapter doesn't say much more than what has already been said in the above articles. This book chapter follows more or less the same structure as the Global Supply Chain Risk Management article, it even uses the same figure, but it is better written and more geared towards the practitioner, with examples of how to put the model into use. Personally I find the book chapter preferable to the article. But - there is a very good reason to look closer at that chapter, it is a figure that perfectly illustrates how a risk matrix can be put to use when assessing supply chain risk.

Comprehensive

As to the rest of the book, it is to say the least, comprehensive, filled with 600 pages of intensely condensed knowledge, covering everything about Global Supply Chain Management from A to Z.

Conclusion

The book comes with a hefty price tag, but reasonably priced used ones are usually available. Although I have focused solely on the chapter on risks, I did browse the other chapters, and I must say they are equally solidly written. It is handbook indeed, allowing the reader to focus on one area of investigation at the time, while never leaving the whole chain out of sight.

The Handbook of Global Supply Chain Management is no light reference, but a solid pick for college-level libraries strong in holdings pertaining to global supply chains. It identifies emerging developments and compares and contrasts them with past GSCM methods, analyzes chains, functions, resources and techniques for making it happen, and uses contributors from professions around the world, both in academic and private business circles. It's this attention to well-rounded detail and depth from different approaches which makes The Handbook of Global Supply Chain Management a critical acquisition for any serious college-level collection offering grad students and researchers detailed perspectives on the subject.

I would recommend this book for researchers who are interested in getting a general picture of SCM.
Not a good choice for practitioners.
