Seven-part Bricks Matter Book Review by Kirk Munroe (Kinaxis):

Published starting March 6th, 2013 by Kirk Munroe
I recently received my personally signed copy of Lora Cecere’s Bricks Matter and it immediately had me thinking that I have always wanted to do a book review.
As for reviewing this particular text, I also thought it might be nice to bring a perspective that was not steeped in traditional supply chain knowledge and experience. Having spent the last 15 years in enterprise software, I am continually struck by how different the value chain of plan-source-make-deliver-return, along with the associated supplier and customer touch points, is with enterprise software. Thinking about it the other way round, I have no natural biases in reading the book from the perspective of how I think value chains should be structured.

So, here goes. This will be a seven-part series. One blog per chapter with a final, summary review to wrap up.

Part I: Read the review of Chapter 1

Part II: Read the review of Chapter 2

Part III: Read the review of Chapter 3
