Overview

This Handbook is the first substantive, multi-disciplinary academic work to make coherent analysis of supply systems from the perspective of purchasing and supply, operations management, logistics, supply chain management, service management, industrial or relationship marketing, and inter-organization networks. Selected by a team of leading international scholars, chapters examine key issues in the context of globalization and the move towards cooperative inter-organization network working. Expert contributors examine supply at different systems levels and differentiate between supply policy, strategy, management and operations.
