Supply Chain Management

In today's global economy, organizations and managers need to understand global supply chains; this is especially true for project professionals working on international or cross-border programs and projects.  Even within single markets, the supply chain for many projects can be many levels deep, including prime contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, equipment and software vendors, critical parts suppliers, materials suppliers, consultants and many others.  Many books and papers are available on this topic.  Here are a few other resources that might be useful.
