Global supply chain decision-makers and practitioners are about to face brutally tough new challenges. They will be called upon to manage supply and demand in a world marked by demographic and economic shifts that will turn their supply and demand markets upside down. They will have to secure crucial supplies in an era when resources are severely constrained. Now, three pioneering supply chain leaders fully illuminate these game-changing challenges, offering a complete decision framework and practical tools, insights, and guidance for systematically mitigating new risks and building long-term supply chain-based competitive advantage. Global Macro Trends and Their Impact on Supply Chain Management is the first book to focus squarely on emerging societal, technological, geopolitical, and environmental macro trends that will powerfully impact every supply chain. Authors Chad W. Autry, Thomas J. Goldsby, and John E. Bell walk you through assessing the impacts of population growth, migration, urbanization; socioeconomic change, global connectivity, environmental issues, and geopolitics. They review new challenges associated with increased global demand, growing scarcity, transportation congestion, aging infrastructure, and emerging supply-demand imbalances. Next, they provide comprehensive mitigation strategies based on logistics, resource recovery, resource protection, demand and supply shaping, and other techniques. This book will be an indispensable resource for all supply chain, logistics, sourcing, and operations management executives, managers, and professionals; for operations research professionals and graduate students; and for others working in these fields in industry, government, and the military.

MANAGE THE DEMOGRAPHIC, ECONOMIC, AND ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES THAT WILL REVOLUTIONIZE YOUR GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN
New solutions and best practices for mitigating risk
Includes full length examples in each chapter
By three of the world’s leading experts in Supply Chain Management
In the coming years, several global macrotrends are likely to substantially disrupt modern business practices, add unprecedented complexity to supply chains, and cause massive problems for supply chain, logistics, and operations managers. Now, three leading experts help you understand these macrotrends, anticipate and assess their potential impact to your business, systematically mitigate emerging risks, and leverage new opportunities for sustainable profit.
The authors help you plan for continued population growth and migration; the growing buying power of rising economies; broader and deeper global connectivity; national geopolitical activities aimed at protecting access to natural resources; and the likely impacts of environmental and climate change. They offer actionable insights for virtually all supply-chain related decisions: from locating plants and warehouses to prioritizing markets, designing products, and choosing suppliers.
This book focuses squarely on the emerging global demographic, economic, and environmental macrotrends that will powerfully impact your supply chain—helping you anticipate problems, mitigate risk, and build long-term competitive advantage. Three prominent supply chain authors illuminate each of these game-changing issues and present an analysis for anticipating market opportunities and solving the supply chain problems they will cause.
You’ll find actionable recommendations and insights for systematically mitigating disruptions that are expected to become frequent, long-lasting, and severe. The authors help you answer questions like: How do you manage supply and demand in a world marked by massive demographic and economic shifts? How do you secure the supplies you need to grow your business when resources are severely constrained and nations are aggressively attempting to lock them down? How do you choose the right products, suppliers, and markets—and abandon the wrong ones?
The authors provide interconnected strategies and recommendations you leverage immediately—improving short-term performance as you prepare for longer-term issues. Whatever your operational role, this book will help you build a supply chain that is more resilient, more sustainable, and far more competitive in a transforming world.
