Dangerous Supply Chain Myths Series

In what was (and is) one of the most popular series in the Procurement Insights Blog’s history, the Dangerous Supply Chain Myths series was based on my review of the ISM, CAPS and A.T. Kearney Report that was originally released in May 2007.

Considered to be a breakthrough assessment of the purchasing industry at the time, I felt that there were several gaps in the study.  What is important, and within the context of present day realities, what do you think.  Do the key areas highlighted in the study still carry weight in the here and now?  If not, what has superseded them in terms of overall importance?

Whatever your thoughts, I am certain that you will find this series interesting.
