Mark Fagan identifies key guiding principles and strategies based on past successes and failures, producing a roadmap for the future of supply chain management.

Responding to the increased salience and fragility of supply chains in light of Covid-19, environmental concerns, and geopolitical factors, this book adopts a unique perspective by focusing on the public sector. It analyzes specific case studies, and examines how to build and manage supply chains at the systems level. Chapters investigate key issues including evaluation processes, AI in supply chains, friend shoring and near shoring, and ensuring human rights across the supply chain.
