The objective of supply chain management (SCM) is to incorporate activities across and within organizations for providing the customer/stakeholders value. SCM has been widely researched in numerous application domains during the last decade. Despite the popularity of SCM research and applications, considerable confusion remains as to its meaning. There are several attempts made by researchers and practitioners to appropriately define SCM. Amidst fierce competition in all industries, SCM has gradually been embraced as a proven managerial approach to achieving sustainable profits and growth. This book entitled “What to Know about Supply Chain Management” consists of nine (9) chapters.
