CHICAGO, Nov. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Kearney is proud to announce the launch of Strong Supply Chains Through Resilient Operations, a guide to navigating the supply chain turmoil of recent years and rethinking operations for competitive advantage in a volatile environment, authored by five Kearney partners.

Published by Wiley, the book explores five principles—empowering the supply base, operating for the customer, building resilient teams, combining AI with human judgment, and embracing sustainability—to transform an operations strategy. While every transformation is unique, these five principles will be present in every journey, and the authors help readers to think through their transformation end to end—from strategy, to action, to scenario planning for the future.

Strong Supply Chains features expertise from across Kearney’s global offices, offering a worldwide perspective that supply chain executives can benefit from, regardless of where they are based.
