Replete with examples, cases, and best practices. Emerging Trends in Global Supply Chain Management fully illuminates the game-changing issues supply chain decision-makers now face. Three seasoned practitioners provide state-of-the-art answers and insights into questions like: How do you manage supply and demand in a world marked by demographic and economic shifts that turn your supply and demand markets upside down? How do you secure the supplies you need to sustain and grow your business when resources are severely constrained? Focusing on emerging societal, technological, geopolitical, and environmental macro trends that will powerfully impact every supply chain, they present a complete decision framework for anticipating and solving tomorrow's supply chain problems.

  • Anticipating increased global demand, growing scarcity, transportation congestion, aging infrastructure, and new supply-demand imbalances

  • Mitigation strategies based on logistics, resource recovery, resource protection, demand and supply shaping, and more
