Supply Chains in Action: A Case Study Collection
We are putting out another call for short case studies to be published online and in book form for a practitioner and academic market. Their purpose is to educate, inform and give real-life examples of supply chains, logistics, operations management and procurement in action.
The cases are to be 1500 – 3000 words in length, consisting of an introduction, main text, learning outcomes and a biography with a particular emphasis on creating Action.
We already have a substantial number of cases, but we would like to add to these with some more ground-breaking examples of supply chains in Action.
The deadline for the submission of first drafts is April 30th 2019.
If you are interested, please submit an abstract to enable selection and commissioning (see an example of an abstract here) by March 11th 2019 to Julia Swales, Head of Publishing, at [email protected].
