LESSONS FROM THE INNOVATORS.

SUBTITLE: THE CONVENTIONAL SUPPLY CHAIN IS FAST BECOMING OBSOLETE. WHAT'S NEEDED INSTED, IS A NEW BUSINESS DESIGN CALLED THE VALUE NET -- A DYNAMIC, HIGH-PERFORMANCE NETWORK OF CUSTOMER/SUPPLIER PARTNERSHIPS AND INFORMATION FLOWS. VALUE NETS ARE FAST AND FLEXIBLE. THEY CAPTURE ACTUAL CUSTOMER CHOICES IN REAL TIME AND THEN TRANSMIT THOSE CHOICES DIGITALLY TO OTHER NET PARTICIPANTS. APPLICATION OF THIS POWERFUL CONCEPT CAN DELIVER STUNNING NEW VALUE FOR CUSTOMERS AND SHAREHOLDERS ALIKE. THE INNOVATIVE EARLY ADOPTERS WHOSE STORIES ARE HIGHLIGHTED BELOW PROVE THAT CONVINCINGLY.
