Publisher's Summary

When CEOs think about the supply chain, it's usually to cut costs. But the smartest leaders see supply chain and sourcing for what they can be: hidden tools for outperforming the competition. Steve Jobs, upon returning to Apple in 1997, focused on transforming the supply chain. He hired Tim Cook - and the company sped up the development of new products, getting them into consumers' hands faster. The rest is history.
Across a range of industries, once-leading companies are in trouble: Walmart, IBM, Pfizer, HP, and The Gap to name a few. But others thrive. While competitors were shutting stores, Zara's highly responsive supply chain made it the most valued company in the retail space and its founder, the richest man in Europe. The success of TJX, Amazon, Starbucks, and Airbus, is fueled by supply chain and sourcing. Showcasing real solutions, The Supply Chain Revolution will:


Improve customer satisfaction and increase revenue
Make alliances more successful
Simplify and debottleneck the supply chain
Boost retail success by managing store investment
Drive excellence

Technology is disrupting business models. Strategies must change. The Supply Chain Revolution flips conventional thinking and offers a powerful way for companies to compete in challenging times.

informative but dry

It had great content, however a tad dry. An insightful read for those in the industry. I would recommend to read with coffee.

Great business book

The strategies and key points are powerful and important for any business. I plan to use many of them in my current and future endeavors. The story itself gets a little too repetitive in some areas and loses focus near the end. Otherwise a great book and highly recommend.
