A brand new collection of state-of-the-art techniques for building more sustainable, higher-performing organizations… now in a convenient e-format, at a great price!

Three 100% practical primers help you drive competitive advantage by optimizing sustainability and operational performance

To compete in today’s extraordinarily competitive global environment, organizations need to achieve new levels of sustainability and operational performance. This brand-new package brings together three practical, state-of-the-art primers for doing just that. Robert Palevich’s The Lean Sustainable Supply Chain offers start-to-finish guidance for redesigning company infrastructure and technologies to achieve the powerful benefits that come with integrating "lean" and "green." and benefits. Palevich introduces core concepts of lean green supply chain management, illuminating them with a comprehensive case study showing how to manage change, innovation, talent, execution, inventory, warehousing, and transportation. He demonstrates how to integrate supply chain sustainability into business scorecards; use 3PLs more effectively; drive more value from information, and systematically address every relevant technical issue. Next, in Creating a Sustainable Organization, Peter A. Soyka presents today’s most complete and actionable guide to improving business performance through sustainable practices. Soyka bridges the disparate worlds of the EHS/sustainability professional and the investor/analyst, outlining today’s best evidence about linkages between sustainability and value, discussing key stakeholder relationships, and introducing new practices for managing and measuring sustainability throughout the business. Finally, Arthur V. Hill’s The Encyclopedia of Operations Management is today’s most convenient and useful supply chain/operations management "field manual." Bringing together nearly 1,500 well-organized definitions, it helps you quickly map all areas of these fields, from accounting and distribution through quality management, strategy, transportation, and warehousing. Throughout, Hill offers a shared language and realistic insights for improving any process and supporting any training program.

From world-renowned supply chain and operations experts Robert Palevich, Peter A. Soyka, and Arthur V. Hill
