Supply chain management as a field of study and practice has come a long way, though the field is over 150 years old. A book on supply chain strategy would definitely go beyond theory and also would add something very new to the collective knowledge. After reading this book, I really appreciate the authors' depth and breadth of experience. Numerous examples are cited from diverse industries, telling about their unique supply chains. Cases like Zara, HP, Wal Mart and Lilly are often cited to make very important points.
These are the five disciplines for top SCM performance, as mentioned and explained in the book:

Core discipline 2: Develop an end-to-end process architecture
Core discipline 3: Design your organization for performance
Core discipline 4: Build the right collaborative model
Core discipline 5: Use metrics to drive business success
I am sure top SCM leaders would find this book very informative.
