Introduction: surf’s up

Surfing the Digital Wave

Peter J. Rimmer and Booi Hon Kam

Digital technology has rewritten the script for product consumption, changed business operations and altered the consumer's view of logistics. The rise of online purchasing and growth of omnichannels have repositioned the role of logistics in the consumer’s purchasing journey. Increasingly, consumers are playing a bigger role in helping themselves to achieve the 7Rs — right product, quantity, condition, place, time, cost and customer — to satisfy their desire to obtain products and services at the speed of now. Their growing contribution in the last-mile supply chain is the crux of 'Consumer Logistics'. Digitization, aided by the Internet of Things and 3D Printing, is further edging Consumer Logistics into the realm of crowdsourcing. This book captures the imminent change in supply chain practice by recapping the evolutionary journey of logistics management dating back to the 1950s and revealing challenges businesses face as consumers continue to expand their roles in the last-mile supply chain.

As an area of study, the intersection between leadership and sexuality has not been adequately addressed, despite the importance of sexual issues influencing leadership processes. To address this limitation, this chapter introduces three distinct ways in which to understand sexuality and leadership. One way is in terms of sexual leaders, i.e., individuals or organizations that put forward new ideas about how people should embrace their sexuality. The second way relates to how leaders, regardless of the industry or environment in which they lead, must think about the way that sexuality influences how they should govern. The third area, the sexuality of leaders, focuses on how the sexual desires that people have or the decisions they make may be influenced by their role as leaders.
