Summary Supply chain has emerged as a major focus of business improvement efforts. Unfortunately, not all firms have taken advantage of the concept, resulting in a large gap between successful e-commerce companies and failures. E-Supply Chain explains how the progress of e-commerce is dovetailing with the final stages of the supply chain evolution, and how to take advantage of it in business.
The authors show how the convergence of supply chain and e-commerce can catalyze the forging of advanced-level networks that will dominate future markets. In the first wave, some part of virtually every business will transfer to a cyber channel of distribution. In the second wave, networks targeting specific consumers will create new alliances across the full spectrum of supply. In the third wave, advanced networks will form global "value chain constellations" that will become the norm for most future industries.
