But please buy it if you are starting to think that some of your problems, or more importantly some of your opportunities, are some how linked to the way in which your business operates.
Not business is an island so we depend on others who thus bring variation and their own shortfalls into our business, even though we may not see this when we are so close to every day decision making.
The table 1.2 is the simplest decsription I have ever seen as to the 9 types of supply relationships.
A practical book, soft cover so not overtly pretentious, and good value for those who can use some ideas to create their own.
It starts with a fundamental look at value and value drivers and how they relate to business strategy down the supply chain. The beginning chapter also introduces a valuable schematic representation of strategic options that drives value through the transformational process. Each transformational option is examined in detail subsequently chapter by chapter.
Each chapter in turn is peppered with cases covering a broad industry segment to illustrate each transformational option.
Overall, it's an excellent practical primer for the practitioner looking for stepping stones to transform the supply chain. Don't expect to find all the answers. However you can be assured that this book will open you up to a host of new ideas and change your thinking in the process. It did mine!
It's very welcomed reading and a great departure from the many books on SCM many of which tends to lean more towards the theoretical.
