Ed likes to write and share his thoughts on (mostly supply chain related) things. He writes expert opinion articles and blogs and has contributed to other people’s publications. Most can be found in the “Other publications” and “Blog” sections on this website.

In April 2012, Ed’s first management book was published, called

The Perfect Pass: what the manager can learn from the football trainer

It deals with the importance of seeing the BIG PICTURE, having good internal and external ALIGNMENT and achieving COHERENCE at all levels. It was published in Dutch, and it has since then been translated and published in two more languages: Spanish and English.

Currently, Ed is busy writing a new book under the working title “Mastering the Supply Chain. Principles, practice and real-life applications“. Publication will be with UK-based Kogan Page Publishing, the book is due to appear in Q1, 2019.
