collaborative approach distinguishes this book from the many other
supply chain management “handbooks published in the last few years. The
book states at the outset that it strives to “clarify both the theory
and practice’ of supply chain management. By effectively combining the
strategic discussion and the mini-cases, the Handbook of Supply Chain
Management has in large part accomplished that goal.”

executive with supply chain experience at Dell and in the global
automotive industry, I was impressed with the comprehensive nature of
this book. Especially insightful and helpful are the sections on
designing supply chains for strategic advantage, the importance and
impact of different financial costing methods, and a methodologies
section, which walks the reader through the supply chain improvement
process from the prestudy/assessment phase through to implementation.
Overall, if a supply chain practitioner is looking for one book on
Supply Chain Management, this is the one.”
