  • “The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people half way.” ~ Henry Boyle.
  • “Negotiation is not a policy. It’s a technique. It’s something you use when it’s to your advantage, and something that you don’t use when it’s not to your advantage.” ~ John Bolton.
  • “You have to persuade yourself that you absolutely don’t care what happens. If you don’t care, you’ve won. I absolutely promise you, in every serious negotiation, the man or woman who doesn’t care is going to win.” ~ Felix Dennis.

Free Supply Chain Training

When I hear the words “free Supply Chain training” I automatically think what is the catch.  There is a huge amount of free supply chain training out there just need to know where to get it.  Youtube is a favorite place to get free training as well as great conferences that I don’t have the time to attend.  Below are some of the absolutely free supply training training resources.

 

What is the mistake in the quote below?  This is a great quote for this blog.  You have supply chain experience one way or another.  Think about your day and all things that apply to supply chain and logistics.  When loading the dishwasher do you do maximum capacity or do you spread out the dishes to ensure perfectly clean dishes?   If you have kids think about the logistics it takes to get the kids to where they need to be.  Learn from everywhere and learn from everyone.

This is one of my favorite quotes because we can learn from everyone.  Sometimes you learn the good, sometimes you learn the bad.  Think about the worse boss you have ever had.  Do you try not to be like that person?

Strategic Sourcing for Successful Supply Chain Management.

  • “The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people half way.”  ~ Henry Boyle
  • “You have to persuade yourself that you absolutely don’t care what happens. If you don’t care, you’ve won. I absolutely promise you, in every serious negotiation, the man or woman who doesn’t care is going to win.”  ~ Felix Dennis
  • “Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.” ~ Sun Tzu
  • “We tend to think that, in a traditional organisation, people are producing results because management wants results, but the essence of a high-quality organisation is people producing results because they want the results. It’s puzzling we find that hard to understand, that if people are really enjoying, they’ll innovate, they’ll take risks, they’ll have trust with one another because they are really committed to what they’re doing and it’s fun” ~ Peter Senge
  • “What business strategy is all about-what distinguishes it from all other kinds of business planning-is, in a word, competitive advantage. Without competitors there would be no need for strategy, for the sole purpose of strategic planning is to enable the company to gain, as efficiently as possible, a sustainable edge over its competitors.” ~ Kenichi Ohmae
  • “The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them” ~ Denis Watley
  • “Negotiation is not a policy. It’s a technique. It’s something you use when it’s to your advantage, and something that you don’t use when it’s not to your advantage.”  ~ John Bolton
