Supply Chain Rockstar

What does it take to become a Supply Chain Rockstar?  Or at the very least for your employer to acknowledge that you know what you are doing.  Then again, let’s shoot for the stars and be a Supply Chain Rockstar.  There are certifications out there which are great but also very expensive.  A Supply Chain MBA is also very good but can be expensive as well as very time consuming.  So let’s do a Rockstar on a budget.  First, have you been visiting various Supply Chain websites to see what is going on out there.  EverythingSupplyChain.com was made so you could quickly get caught up on recent supply chain current events.  So be sure you are visiting various Supply Chain websites.

Utilize free resources out there.  Here is a list of over 150 top Supply Chain videos.  Instead of watching videos of cats and dogs watch videos of top supply chain leaders.  Find out what leading companies are doing.  Pick some top Supply Chain companies and start following them.  Two of my favorites are Walmart and Toyota.  Here is a “list of Supply Chain companies” you may want to follow.

Are you on social media?  One of my favorite places to learn are LinkedIn discussion groups.  Here is a great LinkedIn group for Supply Chain with nearly 100,000 member.  Here is a Supply Chain Facebook group with over 10,000 members.  There is so much to choose from out there.  Participate in the groups.  Get your name out there.  Even if you don’t know anything about Supply Chain start asking questions in the groups and grow your network.  Don’t let fear stand in your way.

If you want to become a blogger we can help out in that area as well.  EverythingSupplyChain.com is starting to look for guest bloggers.  SupplyChainToday.com will be looking for guest bloggers in the future.

Would like to hear from the community on ways to become a Supply Chain Rockstar.  If you don’t like the term Supply Chain Rockstar how can people get the knowledge of a Supply Chain MBA?

Supply Chain and Logistics Quotes

  • “When you are out observing on the gemba, do something to help them. If you do, people will come to expect that you can help them and will look forward to seeing you again on the gemba.” ~ Taiichi Ohno, father of Toyota Production System (TPS)
  • “You will not find it difficult to prove that battles, campaigns, and even wars have been won or lost primarily because of logistics.”  ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

  • If you think of standardization as the best that you know today, but which is to be improved tomorrow; you get somewhere.”  ~ Henry Ford
  • “Every breakthrough business idea begins with solving a common problem. The bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity. I discovered a big one when I took apart an IBM PC.

Supply Chain Strategic Importance

Ray Kroc Luck

  • “Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves it s amazing what they can accomplish.” ~ Sam Walton
  • “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ~ Steve Jobs

Good to Great

This is video review for the book Good To Great by Jim Collins, produced by Callibrain, employee engagement through social collaboration and execution discipline.

  • “For no matter what we achieve, if we don’t spend the vast majority of our time with people we love and respect, we cannot possibly have a great life. But if we spend the vast majority of our time with people we love and respect – people we really enjoy being on the bus with and who will never disappoint us – then we will almost certainly have a great life, no matter where the bus goes. The people we interviewed from the good-to-great companies clearly loved what they did, largely because they loved who they did it with.”  ~ Jim Collins, Good to Great


Go from Good to Great. Make your supply chain great.
