Reviews for Essentials of Supply Chain Management
Easy-to-read overview of the foundations and fundamental concepts in supply-chain management. I work in IT for a computer manufacturer, so I sit in the middle of a large, competitive supply chain, and this book provided a lot of "ah has" for me and solidified concepts. I can see more relevance now between what I do and the strategic goals of my employer.I have only two criticisms, and they are small. First, all of the "examples from the real world" sections are about the _same_ company, and it slowly dawns on you that it is the author's employer. It's fine, but it does seem disingenuous to give the impression they were based on interviews and industry research. Second, the sections on how to manage IT projects are ridiculous, full of executive-level abstractions (Just make a plan to design it, build it, and be sure to timebox the work. Yep, that's it.). But if you work in IT, you are already accustomed to that kind of "executive oversight," and you can scan through those chapters quickly.read more
