Great Artwork
This is just offtopic. But have you read the book 'Lean Six Sigma for Supply Chain Management' by James Martin. If yes, what is your opinion about it?

Are there any other books - recent ones that feature updated topics- that you can recommend? I have ordered David Blanchards book.
Any information would be useful.

Sorry, I hadn't gotten a chance to read James Martin's book. I read Yossi Sheffi's book on supply chain security recently and that was very
interesting. And about a year ago I read "How to Make an Elephant Dance"
IBM's transformation story by Lou Gerstner, which has a few chapters on
supply chain.

I have some but they are copy protected. Try the analyst firms like Gartner, IDC or AMR Research.
