The International Diabetes Federation reports that the number of diabetics in the world is expected to increase from 194 million in 2003 to 330 million by 2030, when 3 of every 4 sufferers will live in developing countries. Because diabetics are far more frequently under the age of 65 in developing nations, the complications of micro- and macrovascular disease take a far greater toll. In 2005, an estimated 1.1 million people died of diabetes-related illnesses, and 80% of these deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries.

The first edition of Global Logistics and Distribution Planning: Strategies for
Management appeared in 1988. Since then the whole field of logistics has
changed. Of course, there is still agreement about the basic principle of a
supply chain as ‘the series of activities and organizations that materials –
both tangible and intangible – move through on their journeys from
initial suppliers to final customers’ (Waters, 2009).
The shipping industry is both special and fascinating. It is special, above all, because of its
truly global nature, the huge discrete investments needed, the highly cyclical markets at play,
and the unique competitive structure, with many determined players. It is fascinating, above
all, because fortunes are made—and lost—at a fast pace, with some of the most risk-willing
owners also serving as decision makers.
This book is the result of at least seven forces that have shaped my interest in shipping
corporations and their strategies. The first is purely personal.
This book analyses the global economy from the viewpoint of innovative firms. The main contribution
relates to the argument that the best way to solve the current and future challenges facing the global
economy is through a better understanding of Schumpeterian entrepreneurship in its modern forms.
Multinational companies sell global commodities and mass-customized products, often by utilizing
general principles of applied microeconomics such as Porter’s matrix of generic strategies.
The acceleration of globalization and the growth of emerging economies present signifi
cant opportunities for business expansion. One of the quickest ways to achieve
effective international expansion is by leveraging the web, which allows for the technological
connectivity of global markets and opportunities to compete on a global basis.
To systematically engage and thrive in this networked global economy, professionals
and students need a new skill set – one that can help them develop, manage, assess, and
optimize efforts to successfully launch websites for tapping global markets.
In April 2000, the Japanese government established the National Strategy for
Industrial Technology in order to identify challenges and solutions for Japanese
industrial technology in the twenty-first century. The Second Science and Technology
Basic Plan, a five year plan that started in 2001, is a part of this national
strategy. According to this plan, a total of approximately $200 billion will be
invested in governmental research and development.
That rapid globalization is taking place in businesses around the world is beyond
dispute. If multinational firms are to prosper now and in the future, their managers
must be able to function in a global context—formulating and implementing strategies,
inventing and utilizing technologies, and creating and coordinating information.
International assignments are the single most powerful means for developing
future global leaders.
Conclusion: Toward a Science of Implementation
Public-health strategies draw largely on quantitative methods—from epidemiology and biostatistics, but also from economics. Clinical practice, including internal medicine, draws on a rapidly expanding knowledge base but remains focused on individual patient care; clinical interventions are rarely population-based. In fact, neither public-health nor clinical approaches alone will prove adequate in addressing the problems of global health.
