Summary and Info
PRAISE FOR Delivering the Goods "While it's difficult to top Sander's Pulitzer nomination and Schechter's Stanford degrees, we must gladly admit that your book ROCKS!"-Tom Peters Company "The supply chain is corporate America’s last frontier. Conquering it is the key to reducing costs and maximizing profits. Damon Schechter and Gordon Sander have done a remarkable job of demonstrating the importance of supply chain management to today’s business. They also show how the art of supply chain management evolved out of the military art of logistics, and how the most successful military leaders, from Alexander the Great on, were, for the most part, successful supply chain managers as well. Great reading and a must for any forward-looking business executive’s library." –William "Gus" Pagonis, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, Sears, Roebuck and Co.; Lieutenant General, U.S. Army (retired) "Delivering the Goods is an important milestone in helping educate business executives in the importance of logistics. Schechter and Sander skillfully articulate both the historic and contemporary value of logistics, making the book a must-read for any executive looking to enhance customer satisfaction and reduce the cost of doing business." –Yossi Sheffi, Director, MIT Center for Transportation Studies "With Delivering the Goods, Schechter and Sander have taken a previously neglected aspect of business and shown how supply chain management can transform an enterprise. Using examples from military history and modern industry, they show conclusively that sound logistics and their Tri-Level View can improve any organization’s bottom line." –David Kelley, CEO, IDEO Product Development, the creators of the Apple mouse "Logistics is the basis of strategy in the business world, as well as the military. In Delivering the Goods, the authors accord it the importance it deserves." –Sir John Keegan, bestselling author of The Face of Battle and A History of Warfare
