Supply Chain Cybermastery is inspired by the eCommerce revolution, which has changed the world forever and reignited interest in the supply chain as a source of wealth creation. Chief executives and their management teams must re-invent themselves and adjust their leadership and management styles to cope with the new realities. Indeed, some are already emulating companies like Sun, Cisco, Intel, Oracle and Microsoft to get their more traditional multinationals back on the growth agenda. Their new focus is the supply chain and enabling technology, both areas previously delegated to functional specialists.The underlying theme in this book is the huge potential that eCommerce has unleashed in supply chains. But is a bit like being asked to jump straight into a Formula 1 racing car, so we must first learn to drive this new phenomenon to extract maximum benefit.Collaboration in the truest sense of the word is now technically possible throughout the length and breadth of the supply chain; all that is needed is the will to make things happen. Relationships will be everything in the future. And, with lessened conflict will come the opportunity to explore new ways of working smarter for mutual benefit.The competition across all industries, in both the old and new economies, will be relentless, coming in waves, and often from unexpected directions. In turn the responses will often be unnatural alliances, within and across industries. The rules of the game are changing, and nothing should surprise. Innovation and creativity will be at a premium.So whichever way you look at the first decade of the new millennium, speed and scale will be the key ingredients of success - and this is exactly where the new high performance supply chains will shine.In keeping with the speed of the phenomenon that has so rapidly transformed the way business is transacted, the book is structured around the key areas of change in the B2B world. The objective is to give a 'work in progress' overview and to forecast how business might evolve as the initial flush of activity settles down.
