Strategic choices affecting the supply chain

no man is an island

This whitepaper is the second in a series explaining the different aspects of the Supply Chain Triangle concept. Each part can be read separately. However, it is best to read ‘The essentials’ first. In this whitepaper we build further on the Supply Chain Triangle concept, showing how different strategies lead to different trade-offs in the Supply Chain Triangle. For the full story, including a host of practical examples, we recommend reading Bram Desmet’s book Supply Chain Strategy and Financial Metrics. The Supply Chain Triangle of Service, Cost and Cash.’
