Transforming supply chain management to achieve operational excellence is a mandate for many companies, but it's a complex, challenging process. A new book, Supply Chain Transformation: Practical Roadmap to Best Practice Results, helps readers get started on that journey.
In a conversational style incorporating real-world cases and illustrations, author Richard J. Sherman offers a step-by-step roadmap to transforming a supply chain to become a best-practices leader and achieve a competitive advantage. Along the way, the book covers such critical areas as sourcing, production, and the integration of logistics with product development, marketing, sales, and finance. It also addresses the role of emerging technologies such as RFID, cloud computing, telematics, and big-data analysis.
Sherman currently is president of Gold & Domas Research and director of strategic development for the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP).
