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 interorganization networks. Selected by a team of leading international scholars, chapters examine key issues in the context of globalization and the move towards co-operative interorganization network working. Expert contributors examine supply at different systems levels and differentiate between supply policy, strategy, management and operations. Organized into themed parts, each section is framed by an insightful introduction that 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.
