The Lean Supply Chain: Managing the Challenge at Tesco explores how UK multinational grocery and general merchandise retailer Tesco addresses the challenge of managing its supply chains. The book examines how Tesco has used lean thinking, loyalty and simplicity to achieve its dominant position. It shows how Tesco's senior leadership made a simple but game-changing decision to focus the business on its customers rather than the conventional approach of 'competing with our competitors' and asks whether the approach to managing the supply chain needs to be adapted to deal with current challenges that Tesco faces.

The authors look at how the retailer developed and maintains one of the most effective supply chains in the world. The Lean Supply Chain demonstrates Tesco's most successful strategies through real life examples, drawing upon the authors' deep knowledge of how Tesco has developed and succeeded from both an academic and practitioner perspective. It includes an assessment of how Tesco is dealing with current challenges and market changes, including its successful rollout of online shopping and convenience stores as well as how it is attempting to maintain its position as the UK's largest retailer.
