“This book is an insightful, well-balanced, stimulating
SCM Strategy book that clearly tells managers, consultants, as well as
educators that the SCM concept is not a fad but a must strategy to gain
competitive advantage in today’s dynamic global market place. There are three
major strengths. First, it is an unprecedented interdisciplinary SCM strategy
book that explains how companies obtain, maintain, and even enhance competitive
advantages based upon a well-laid SCM strategy. Second, it provides readers a
unique, well-balanced framework for SCM strategy formulation. Third, it is a
valuable contribution in the area of SCM in that it does a good job in
explaining such a complicated SCM strategy to readers in such a simple manner.”
"The book will be of use to practicing supply chain managers and academics alike. It is full of examples of companies, where certain supply chain practices work and other did not. It can serve as an excellent supplement to a standard text on supply chains, to introduce students to the problems and issued faced in managing supply chains."
Good book which provides the students with a sound understanding of the fundamentals of SCM and the importance of creating customer value.
I will be recommending this to my colleagues who teach the MSc in Logistics and Supply. Their students will find this a useful book. Its concept coverage is very good, and the book is slim enough not to be daunting. All the basics are covered, which makes it useful to academics and even practitioners.
Its good enough to introduce the supply chain management. It includes main subjects and its written in understandable language.

I feel this book is a good support book for my students to add another dimention to their understanding of the subject.
It will be interesting over time how essential the students find it.
