About the Authors
  • This edition of Supply Chain Management (SCM) was revised to appeal to a wider readership besides students taking SCM courses. Global supply chain managers and researchers in the fields of SCM and operations strategy would find it a useful reference. Rather than discuss the technical issues of SCM, the book focuses on the strategic perspectives and approaches of SCM. Students learn to identify SCM issues from the top management's perspective. The book also presents real-world managerial problems and incorporates case studies for connecting theories with practices. By exploring the fundamental issues of SCM, managers acquire a new learning perspective that enables them to solve problems in a more sustainable and innovative manner rather than use short-term, ad hoc solutions. Finally, it distils various theoretical concepts to allow researchers to observe real SCM issues in a managerial context which allows for practical, meaningful and impactful research to be carried out.

    • Adopts a unique approach (the learning perspective) to guide students and managers to identify the root causes of any managerial problem, understand complex supply chain management (SCM) issues, seek sustainable solutions, and develop robust supply chain strategies effectively
    • This fully revised edition includes five new chapters with many sections re-organised based on reviewers' feedback to match instructors' teaching preferences
    • Supports students and managers in their understanding of sustainability and innovation in SCM, global supply chains, and the configuration and connection issues in the supply chain
