The book delves into the career paths and strategies of those who have propelled businesses of all sizes, from large multinationals to startups, to the forefront of their industries. It provides listeners with a unique perspective on the specific techniques and smart business practices employed by today’s top supply chain leaders to achieve success and reach the C-suite level.
The release of the audiobook follows the success of the print edition of “From Source to Sold,” which has been met with high demand since its October 2022 launch. The book has reached an audience of 1.8 million, is already distributed through 55 online and offline bookshops, and has been featured in over 200 press articles. The book’s launch was also supported by 14 book launch events in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and the Americas, an advertising and social media campaign, which helped the book reach over 5,000 readers.
In addition to the audiobook, the listeners will have access to exclusive bonus content, including “The CHAIN Model,” a companion guide to “From Source to Sold” which is available to audiobook listeners. The companion guide offers additional resources and support to implement the strategies outlined in the book. The leadership stories offer important insights into what it takes to be a successful supply chain leader. And these themes have been neatly summarized through what the authors call the CHAIN Model for Supply Chain Leadership, or Chain (C-H-A-I-N), which stands for: Collaborative, Holistic, Adaptable, Influential, Narrative.
