Supply Chain Management: Past, Present and Future

On our 20th anniversary, SCMR asked founding editor Frank Quinn and four industry experts to weigh in on the future of supply chain management.
By Francis J. Quinn
March 6, 2017

“You want to start a magazine on what?”


That was the incredulous question we heard more than 20 years ago when Supply Chain Management Review was first proposed.

But a core of true believers in our publishing company were convinced that this emerging discipline called supply chain management would soon become a dominant force in business success. We argued that the publication that established itself as the “go-to” supply chain information resource— for the practitioners, service providers and educators who would make up that community—would enjoy a readership advantage for years to come.

Happily, we convinced our management of the importance of supply chain management and of the need to fill an emerging information void. We launched a prototype issue in 1996 that was warmly welcomed by focus groups and in industry surveys. We soon got the green light to begin regular publication and in the spring of 1997 launched the first edition of Supply Chain Management Review. It’s been going strong—no, make that getting better—ever since.
