Resourcing in Business Logistics: The Art of Systematic Combining
Liber, 2006 - Business & Economics - 250 pages
"This book is about utilisation and development of logistics resources, traditional physical ones such as warehouses and vehicles and more modern ""soft"" ones such as business relationships and knowledge. Taking the starting point that the value of any resource always depends on how it is combined with other resources, the book presents ""the art of systematic combining"". Resourcing, i.e. the management of resources, is described by focusing on four important processes: the designing of resources; the influencing between those involved in the production and the using of resources; the learning between them; and the economising on resources. Based on the industrial network approach, the book presents an alternative and complementary perspective on business logistics. This book represents more than five years of research at the Norwegian School of Management, organized in a research programme called NETLOG: Logistics Networks - Studies of Strategic opportunities for industries, networks and single companies."
