Adapt or Die Summary


Adapt or Die: Transforming Your Supply Chain into an Adaptive Business Network by Claus Heinrich

Cut costs and control inventory an adaptive business network This book introduces the adaptive business network, a new method of business interaction that offers the ability to respond swiftly to changing market conditions, increase revenue growth, and lower overall cost. In Adapt or Die, the experts from SAP provide a thought-provoking road map to a new business world in which companies are linked together by uniform business processes and standardized software (uniform business processes and standardized software leaves me the impression of being rigid and inflexible, which is contrary to what were trying to say in the book). An adaptive business network allows companies to more precisely control inventory, quickly add or drop trading partners, and produce products and services that mirror actual customer demand. Adapt or Die explores all the vital aspects of the adaptive business network, including:* The benefits for your business* Ways to prepare your company* Implementing the adaptive business network in four steps* Its application to specific industries* The changes the adaptive business network will bring to the future of business
