This Handbook is the first substantive, multi-disciplinary 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 inter-organization networks. Selected by a team of leading international scholars, chapters examine key issues in the context of globalization and the move towards cooperative inter-organization network working. Expert contributors examine supply at different systems levels and differentiate between supply policy, strategy, management and operations. Organized into themed parts, the insightful introduction provides the framework for the Handbook that is divided into themed parts; it 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.
