Electronic Inspection Copy available to instructors here The Handbook is the first substantive, multidisciplinary 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-organisation networks. Selected by a team of leading international scholars, chapters examine key issues in the context of globalization and the move towards co-operative interorganisation network working. Expert contributors examine supply at different systems levels and differentiate between supply policy, strategy, management and operations. Organised into themed parts, the insightful introduction provides the framework for the Handbook that is divided into themed parts; it positions empirical research in the current academic context and highlights possible directions for future exploration. The Handbook will be the touchstone of any researcher interested in broadening and deepening their understanding of supply systems.
