It's chock-full of real examples of journeys taken to achieve supply chain excellence. Practitioners worldwide can learn much from the insightful conclusions arrived at in the book."—Rick Blasgen, President and CEOCouncil of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP)

"As a journalist, Dave Blanchard has an exceptional ability to look at supply chain best practices from the inside out. His broad perspectives on the burning issues in supply chain management, coupled with his diligent research, make this book a must-read for anyone interested in improving and enhancing their supply chains."—C. John Langley Jr., PhD, Professor of Supply Chain ManagementGeorgia Institute of Technology

"Combining his talents as a journalist and supply chain management professional, David has taken some of the best practices in our field and presented them in an easy-to-read format. This book is the In Search of Excellence for supply chain managers. It is a must-read for those companies wanting to improve supply chain performance."—Robert A. Novack, PhD, Associate Professor of Supply Chain ManagementDepartment of Supply Chain and Information SystemsPennsylvania State University

"Blanchard's Best Practices is the right information delivered at the right time in the right way to address the right problems and to provide the right solutions to the nightmares of managing a supply chain in today's global environment. Supporting his conclusions with actual business scenarios, the author has given the reader insightful advice on how to establish and maintain good communication, collaboration, and cooperation between vendors, customers, manufacturers, distributors, and anyone else who functions as a link in the 'plan, source, make, deliver, and return' process. This book is required reading for those who have made the supply chain their life's work as well as those who are just starting to make it their career."—Dan Fox, Corporate Traffic ManagerSamsonite Corporation

"Blanchard is an extraordinarily perceptive observer of supply chain processes. He sees the big picture. He has compiled practical and replicable examples from all segments of industry and companies. This book clearly outlines what is possible, and how talented and creative individuals and their supportive companies are approaching the tasks to keep their companies financially viable and competitive in this ever-changing global economy. David Blanchard has painted a picture of what informed talent and supportive management can accomplish."—John A. Gentle, DLPJohn A. Gentle & Associates, LLCwww.RelaTranShips.com

From the Inside Flap:

Between inventory management, distribution, warehousing, and transportation costs, corporations are spending over $1 trillion every year. And who's responsible for managing all that spending? If you're reading this, you probably already know the answer—it's YOU—the supply chain professional. While your job description may differ depending on where you work, the goal to develop and position a company's supply chain to compete and win in today's global marketplace is pretty much the same—and it's daunting.

Now featuring relevant and timely new chapters on keeping your supply chain "lean and green," Supply Chain Management Best Practices, Second Edition describes in detail how you can build a "best-in-class" supply chain, told through the accomplishments—and in some cases, failures—of supply chain practitioners and experts. Author David Blanchard—Editorial Director of Penton Media's Supply Chain Group—provides a unique dual perspective as journalist and insider, with access to top supply chain professionals and their insights on creating and sustaining a world-class supply chain.

Packed with abundant anecdotes, interviews, case studies, research, and analysis, this resourceful book is strategically organized into three parts: Part I briefly introduces supply chain management with examples of best-in-class supply chains in various industries and proven methods for measuring the performance of a supply chain. Part II presents the traditional core processes of supply chain management and discusses the best practices being followed by specific trend-setting companies within the global marketplace. Finally, Part III reveals the strategies, solutions, and technologies used by leading companies to design their extended enterprises, including up-to-the minute tips on going green and lean in your supply chain.

Get your company on the supply chain "best practices" track and achieve supply chain excellence with the world-class guidance found in Supply Chain Management Best Practices, Second Edition.
