4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 13 April 2008
By Jan Husdal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This excellent book by Donald Waters offers a comprehensive overview of many important issues in managing supply chain risk. More than 15 case studies and a straightforward hands-on practical approach make this book an enjoyable read. I almost forgot that I bought this book as a text book. This book is written with the manager in mind, and is interspersed with examples from real life, along with calculations and illustrations that explain the concept in a manner that is practical and easy to follow even if you know nothing about supply chain management theory, common sense is all it takes. I highly recommend this book for anybody who wishes to learn the principles of supply chain risk management and put them into practice in one's own business. Worth the price? YES!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must in any project manager's library 6 Sep 2009
By J. Rexach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best descriptive books in the topic, written in a simple, easy to understand language. Excellent specific SCRM guidelines are provided, as it has been written with the practitioner in mind (although researchers could find some topics constructives.) It can also be use as a complement reading in Business Continuity Management courses.
