Straight to the Bottom Line®
Robert A. Rudzki, President, Greybeard Advisors – co-author

sttbl-cover.jpgThe long-neglected supply chain is now a strategic business opportunity. A few leading companies have achieved an enormous competitive advantage and outstanding bottom-line performance by transforming their sourcing strategy and culture. Why haven’t more companies seized this same opportunity? The reason is very simple: a lack of understanding at the senior executive level. Virtually all books on procurement and supply chain have been written for the day-to-day practitioner — until this one.

Straight to the Bottom Line® provides senior executives with a clear roadmap for increasing shareholder value. This book is an ISM selection, and a best seller in the field of supply chain transformation. It’s helped thousands of executives and supply chain professionals discover new ways to elevate sourcing to a strategic advantage, increase shareholder value, and boost their bottom line.
