Supply Chain Management is a 530 page textbook designed for an introductory course at the undergraduate level.The text consists of 15 chapters divided into 3 parts, as follows: Part 1 (The Building Blocks of Supply Chain Strategy – chapters 1 through 5), Part II (Designing the Global Supply Chain – chapters 6 through 10), and Part III (Collaborating Across the Supply Chain – chapters 11 through 15).The preface, acknowledgements section and a brief author biography precede content, at the beginning of the text.A glossary and index are included at the end of the text.
This text was recently selected for a new, two-year degree program in Retail Management, for Penn Foster, Inc.It is an excellent text, and I was particularly impressed that the authors chose to include a timeline of supply chain-related information systems on page 379 (Figure 12.1) of the text, ranging from the 1960s and 1970s (the “Dark Ages”) through 2006 (e.g., ERP II and ECM).Many of these information systems (and their related acronyms) could also prove to be useful and relevant to those interested in providing a historical perspective of software systems in their computer language and science courses.It is, however, possible that activity-based costing (ABC), which is addressed in the text, be included in this timeline, as it may have been ABC and ABM (activity-based management) that led to the recent historical pattern and acceleration of business process outsourcing (BPO), which is also addressed in the text.Perhaps an Appendix, more fully developing this timeline could be developed for and included in the next edition?
This appears to be a first edition for the text, but I suspect that it will be adopted by many institutions and look forward to seeing a second, third, and later editions, as the authors develop what is already an excellent text into an even better one.I give this text my highest possible recommendation for consideration and possible adoption for any institution of higher education for their supply chain management and related courses.

Talent Management Systems by Allan Schweyer
The following review was contributed by: ROGER E. HERMAN Outstanding! Awesome! My title for this book review may seem a bit out of the ordinary, but so is this book. If you’re thinking about buying it, you’re probably hesitant because of the unusually high price. Forget the high price issue. If you are an executive, a company owner, or a human resource professional, this book has more value-per-page than practically any other book you’ll read this year. The whole concept of talent management...
