Greybeard Advisors - SCM: We Wrote the Book

We Wrote the Book on Supply Chain Management

At Greybeard Advisors, we know supply chain management so well, we wrote the book on it.

Many of our world-class practices are drawn directly from our president Robert A. Rudzki’s book: Straight to the Bottom Line,® an ISM book selection, and a recognized best seller in the field. Regarded as one of the best executive-level books on strategic procurement and supply chain management, this book provides not only the theory and concepts, but also real-world examples from leading companies.

Through this best seller and regular speaking engagements at professional conferences, Greybeard and Mr. Rudzki have helped thousands of executives discover how to think beyond the tactical buy — and elevate procurement and supply chain management to a strategic role.


"Straight to the Bottom Line® is the definitive work on procurement/supply base management. Every CEO, CFO, CPO and their boards who are interested in increasing shareholder value need to read this and then make it required reading for their management and procurement teams."

Dick Conrad
former Senior VP, Global Operations Supply Chain
