The authors show managers how to use these tools to implement technology solutions that drive top performance. Special features of Managing the Demand--Supply Chain include: The best thinking from acknowledged leaders in the field An extended case study of Nokia's successful demand chain management implementation Numerous sidebars detailing real--world implementation issues Managing the Demand--Supply Chain is an indispensable resource for managers who want to optimize operational effectiveness, spur innovation, and achieve and sustain excellence in exceeding customer expectations.
