LEVERAGE YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN FOR MAXIMUM PROFIT
Do you have a global supply chain strategy designed for the long run?
About 90 percent of global demand is not fully met by local supply, and global supply chains will soon account for 25 percent of multinational firms' performance--meanwhile, supply chains need to become 43 percent more global in the next decade just to maintain a firm's competitive edge.
Written by three of today's leading experts on the subject--each from Michigan State University, the uncontested world leader of supply chain management--Global Supply Chain Management gives you the know-how and tools to dramatically boost supply chain efficiency by making it a core element of your overall corporate strategy.
Global Supply Chain Management takes you step by step through the process of creating and managing a global supply chain strategy and aligning it with the conditions of your industry.

- LOGISTICS--Integrate logistics strategy and tactical activities
- PURCHASING--Manage the transition to purchasing globally
- OPERATIONS--Systematically design, direct, and control processes
