Must Read

‘The way forward is right there in front of us, but we must throw off old ways and embrace the new’
John Gattorna.

‘Dynamic Supply Chains: delivering value through people’ by John Gattorna offers ‘dynamic alignment’ as a new supply chain model. This new model is focused on reinterpreting customers’ differing expectations and using this insight as the frame of reference to design the internal cultural capability to respond to customers in the most appropriate way.

The book identifies four supply chain types and suggest new ways of segmenting suppliers. The aim of Gattorna’s model is to reconnect suppliers to enterprise chains rather than operating with separate procurement strategies, unconnected to the front end.
