This cutting-edge book clearly defines global supply chain management and logistics and articulates what it takes to be successful on the international stage. Supply Chain Vector represents a unique combination of theory and front-line practice that creates clear links between supply chain tactics and financial performance. It focuses on the relationships between lead time, landed costs, inventory levels and the results found in the income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement as key elements for long-term success. While it emphasizes the role of individual departments, it defines SCM as the holistic blending of functional areas and the collective impact all areas have on the value proposition of the organization.
