An infographic based on David Simchi-Levi's book, Operations Rules, debunks seven myths about supply chain management and operations. These myths suggest that supply chain managers should lower costs at all cost, treat corporate social responsibility initiatives as charity, ignore IT needs and deploy a uniform operations strategy across the entire supply chain. Instead, the author suggests companies balance costs and services, align CSR with business value and invest in IT infrastructure according to the business' needs.
