Sustainable supply chains: challenges, drivers and architectures

Fri, 05/05/2023 - 08:00
A common definition of environmental sustainability is meeting the resource and services needs of current and future generations without compromising the health of the ecosystems that provide them.

Fri, 04/14/2023 - 08:00
<p>Product timeliness refers to goods and products being in the right place at the right time, not out-of-date, and in line with customer expectations.&nbsp;</p> <p>Perishable food items are perhaps the canonical example of products that have a limited shelf life. Even if they’re not labeled with a specific “sell by” or “use by” date, that wilted head of lettuce is not going to be a popular consumer choice. Furthermore, if you stock your produce department with fruits and vegetables that are routinely past their prime, many consume

Unlock your business potential with open leadership

Mon, 01/30/2023 - 08:00
<p>When a leader of any kind begins to take on transforming or modernizing their business, whether it’s a small team or an entire organization, it requires change in multiple directions. What was successful in the past might not work in the changing volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world anymore. Leadership can be practiced at every level of an organization irrespective of the role, title or position, by both people managers and individual contributors alike.
