Twenty-first-century supply chains have evolved into world-wide inter-connected supply-and-demand networks comprising vastly more complex operations, with profound inter-dependencies and exposure to greater volatility in our uncertain world. The linear concept of a chain is therefore no longer adequate to describe these complex international networks of suppliers, stakeholders, partners, regulators and customers that are involved in ensuring the efficient and effective movement of products, services, information and funds around the world - we are firmly in the era of Global Supply Chain Ecosystems. Exploring the latest market trends and industry developments across emerging, developing and developed markets, in Global Supply Chain Ecosystems industry leader Mark Millar presents detailed and practical insights that will help you capitalise on market opportunities, overcome supply chain challenges and make better informed business decisions. In addition to highlighting key supply chain shifts such as the move beyond globalisation back towards regionalisation, this ground-breaking new publication explores several critical aspects of global supply chain ecosystems - including visibility, resilience, sustainability and collaboration.

"Mark Millar is recognized in Asia as a thought leader in supply chain management. His new book Global Supply Chain Ecosystems provides new insight on the multi-dimensional touchpoints across the supply chain, combined with a three-dimensional perspective on the complex ecosystem that dynamically interacts and ultimately defines the optimal movement of product across the globe. He includes discussion on the transformative technologies that can provide competitive advantage, practical case studies and shares his views on how these new methodologies can be creatively leveraged in the evolving developing countries. I strongly recommend this book to both seasoned
professionals and college students seeking to embrace this industry from a different vantage point."--Paul W. Bradley "Chairman and CEO, Caprica International "
