Extract in Supply Chain Management Review

 

From the Back Cover

Your business will be over-servicing some customers, and under-servicing others. The problem is knowing which is which.  Living Supply Chains will help you to re-focus your entire enterprise – people, processes and technology – around meeting the needs of the right customers with the right responses.

 

Living Supply Chains contains much more than its title suggests. This fine book challenges modern managers to consider again the role of supply chains in their businesses and offers genuine answers to the questions they face.  John Gattornahighlights the way forward in matching supply and customer demand.”

Michael Andrews, Director, Tenon Ltd

 

“John Gattornahas brought Supply Chain right into the executive suite where it belongs.  The opportunity for business leaders clearly outlined in Living Supply Chains is to create real organizational alignment with your end markets, and in the process better comprehend the role leadership and people play in making supply chain an integral part of a high-performance business.”

Jeffrey Russell, Managing Partner, Supply Chain AsiaPacific, Accenture

 

“The challenge of supply chains has long been omnipresent, but as our world becomes more complex and our supply lines longer, the power of our supply chain management capabilities to create and destroy value is magnified.   Why do our supply chains succeed or fail?  The answer lies in alignment. The alignment of the needs and values of our customers, our own organization and our suppliers.  When it works it's truly magnificent, and what makes it work is people.  People are at the heart of Living Supply Chains, and the key to a better supply chain future.”

Jon Bumstead, Strategy & Business Planning Director , DHL EXEL Supply Chain

 

 

John Gattornais one of the most original thinkers in the fast-changing arena of supply chain management. He has pioneered the idea of dynamic alignmentwhich is so powerfully presented in this ground-breaking book. If proof were needed that successful companies compete through their supply chain capability, then this fascinating book provides it.”

Martin Christopher, Professor of Marketing & Logistics, CranfieldSchoolof Management

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for the knowledgeable practitioner. It is crammed full of diagnostic tools designed to get you thinking about how adaptive your own value chain is or could be.

There are some assumptions behind this book,1) Most organisations have the desire to create an adaptive supply chain, 2)That organisations are ready to abandon their conventional wisdom in order to find out what their customers really want.

If these assumptions can correctly be made about your organisation then this is book is a must for you.

If you are trying to make a case for your organisation to embark on this course then the book does not provide the evidence you will need or even provide a theoretical framework with which to start. Hence this book is really for the professional change agent working in conditions where you already have senior management commitment.

As a book that reinforces John Gattorna as a skilled and knowledgeable authority on the subject of supply chain improvement it is very successful. It is clear from the book that for the less knowledgeable person then you need the help of someone like John to get you started.

Well written, good read, great source of diagnostic methods, a must for the supply chain improvement practitioner.
