Additional Book Details

"...a must have for anyone who needs to better understand the relationship between finance and the supply chain. It will contribute to not only your understanding and success, but also to the growth and profitability of your employer."

Paul Myerson, Managing Partner, Logistics Planning Associates, LLC, Professor of Supply Chain Management, and notable author

Global competition and stakeholder demands are causing business leaders to seek greater value from their supply chains, and practitioners who think and act more like financial managers. Designed for self-learning, training, and course instruction, this book shows how to apply financial concepts, tools, and techniques to the primary activities of supply chain managers. Supply Chain Financial Management helps readers better understand and manage these activities from a finance perspective and shows how to present the impact of results in financial terms that corporate executives expect. It bridges the divide between supply chain management (SCM) and finance to meet the next level of demands for improved performance and competitive advantage.
