9780749472078: The Lean Supply Chain: Managing the Challenge at Tesco

At Tesco, one of the world's largest retailers, 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." Their strategy was deployed by building world-leading retail and supply chain operations that are both effective in delivering what customers wanted and efficient in performance and cost metrics.

The Lean Supply Chain explores how the retailer used lean thinking, loyalty and simplicity and grew under a determined supply chain strategy to achieve their dominant UK and global position.  Logistics professionals Evans and Mason look at Tesco's origins, the development of their supply chain, the continuous improvement and current developments. They include examples of Tesco's successful operations, including their rapid roll-out of store-based grocery home-delivery and the change of focus from supermarket and hypermarket development to building a network of neighborhood convenience stores and mid-sized stores in cities -- Tesco Metro and Tesco Express stores.

With examples and advice for supply chain management professionals, this book uncovers why Tesco is as successful as it is today and how they did it.

About the Author:

Barry Evans' early career involved a variety of roles in Logistics and Distribution with brewery Watney Mann, food business Rank Hovis McDougall and UK postal service Royal Mail. This was followed by roles in Tesco plc including Lean Process Manager in Tesco Supply Chain Development where he developed ways in which lean thinking could be applied in Tesco.  He has also joined the Lean Enterprise Research Centre at Cardiff Business School as a Senior Research Associate.

Robert Mason is a Senior Lecturer in Logistics and Operations Management section (LOM) at Cardiff Business School and has led many business research projects with Tesco as a partner.

Review:

"Robert and Barry provide a well-researched and fascinating insight into the Lean philosophy that underpinned the strategies of Tesco in the era of Leahy and Clarke.  Their work brings alive how the rigorous pursuit of Lean principles enabled the transition of an ordinary UK supermarket chain into a customer-centric contrarian global winner." (Steve Spall Former Supply Chain and Distribution Development Director, Tesco UK)

"To study Tesco with such intimacy provides a fascinating insight into the logic that underpins the Tesco model and its many evolutions that have provided a sequence of change as the organization has learned new ways to compete.  The authors provide a clarity and insight, over time, of how the forces of business and decisions have shaped the prosperity of this British household name.  The two authors have enjoyed a remarkably privileged position and have maintained the study for many years which makes for a fantastic read and the most insightful understanding of this British mega-organization.  The book is more than a book about a retailor though-it is a book on business, of challenge and dynamic markets, and how Tesco has made sense of its environment, shaped some of the market by defying tradition and convention, and how it has reacted to the turbulence of a truly global sector.  There is much to learn from this account and many lessons that should inspire managers in occupations and sectors that are far beyond retailing.  It is a blend of the thought-provoking and also of the practical aspects of running a modern business." (Nick Rich Professor of Socio-Technical Systems (Operations Management), Swansea University)

"Any book that analyses supply chain strategies followed by leading retailers is bound to be successful.  This book by Evans and Mason examines Tesco's supply chain strategies in a clear and succinct manner.  It will be excellent reading for academics, students, retail managers and supply chain practitioners." (Professor Michael Bourlakis Chair in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Cranfield University)

"For many years Tesco has been regarded as a world-class retailer.  In this insightful book the authors detail the way in which Tesco has utilized best-in-class practices to create a highly effective and efficient supply chain.  It's timely.  The authors look in detail at how Tesco have been able to build a world-class supply chain.  It should appeal to a wide audience-not just those interested in retail." (Martin Christopher Emeritus Professor of Marketing and Logistics, Cranfield School of Management)

"This book provides an in-depth understanding of the constantly changing field of Lean supply chains and the approach that Tesco has taken in developing theirs into a world-class operation.  It is an essential read for anyone interested in supply chain management as it provides great insight as to how to unlock its true value as a core element of a retailer's competitive advantage." (Monica Hope Teaching Fellow, Retail and Marketing, University of Surrey)

"Highly interesting and informative analysis of the initiatives Tesco developed to establish a world-class retail supply chain.  The step-by-step explanation of the approach used is essential reading for practitioners and students of supply chain management.  Well done." (Dr. James Aitken Head of Department for Business Transformation, University of Surrey)

"This book is a superlative in-depth case study of how Lean concepts, together with concepts from marketing, innovation and strategy, have combined to give Tesco an edge in grocery retailing.  The supply chain and improvement chapters would be interesting and valuable to anyone in large-scale retailing.  In particular the sections contrasting conventional wisdom with Tesco's counter-intuitive answers are illustrative of the effectiveness of Lean thinking outside manufacturing.  Following Tesco's history from early days to international giant, and their learnings along the route-what went right and wrong-provides a classic longitudinal study showing the importance of sustained leadership and purpose." (John Bicheno Founder of the MSc Lean Post-Graduate Degree at LERC)

"[F]ascinating – for its timing as much as the overview it provides into one of the world’s most prominent retailers...Manages to offer lessons and best practices that are relevant across industries and functions while telling the Tesco supply chain story sympathetically and in-depth." (Kelly Barner Buyers Meeting Point)

"Much has been written about the Tesco supply chain and ingredients for its success-not least of all Lean thinking.  What isn't so well recognized is that this journey began, and was very advanced, several years before the perceived introduction of Lean principles in 1995 by a homegrown talented team of people drawn from all supply chain functions.  It was this team that created the bedrock for much of what is in place some 20 years later.  What the Lean process did help with is creating a framework to extend this methodology to other functions outside the Tesco internal supply chain.  This book shows that the principles of Lean do work-but only when they are matched with people who can make the difference.  If there is one thing you will learn from this book and the Tesco experience it is that great people make a great company." (Barry Knichel Former Supply Chain Development Director, Tesco)

"Barry Evans and Robert Mason have written an essential guide not only to Tesco's development of their supply chain but also to the imaginative developments which took place within and beyond the UK's supply chains over the last five decades.  As the director responsible for introducing modern supply chain management into Rowntree and Nestlé, I worked closely with Tesco management on greatly improving service both to them and to their customers, our consumers.  While the UK food business remains highly competitive, all supply chain participants continue to work together to benefit all through jointly tackling key supply chain issues, and also by sharing point-of-sale data immediately in order to react well to consumer purchases.  The main UK manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers cooperatively developed world class Electronic Data Interchange of orders, invoices, product and location master data so that accurate data would be actioned without delay or error.  Barry and Robert very well illustrate that supply chain managers cooperate so that supply chain can be truly competitive, to the great benefit of the consumer as well as of the businesses. (Professor Tom McGuffog FCILT FCIPS)
