End-to-End Supply Chain Visibility

PenneyVanderbilt

Organizations are continuously expanding their footprint regionally and globally, making the supply chain professional’s life challenging. This continuous change is tied to an organizations desire to explore low cost production centers and reduce overall costs by placing warehouses and assembling units closer to their customers in order to meet the demand of being faster to market. This activity has resulted in an increase of volume of cross border transactions which makes an organization’s international supply chain more complex.

In a complex global supply chain, organizations are required to work with various parties within and outside the organization in order to meet the customer demands, and yet reduce costs. Having end-to-end Supply Chain Visibility becomes imperative for an organization’s success in meeting these objectives.

The Strategic Road map for Supply Chain Visibility research conducted by Gartne describes the current state of maturity as it relates to visibility, as follows

Goodbye Traditional, Hello Indie (Part I)

Myths of the Mirror

I’ve begun the process of reclaiming my 6 traditionally published books and republishing them myself. I thought it might be useful to document my reasons, particularly for those writers dawdling at this fork in the publishing road, trying to decide which way to go.

Coming IN – A GLBT Tribute

Real Bold Truth

As a Believer this is the most difficult, complex and controversial article I have ever written. I’m actually a bit nervous as I own these words. What will they say? What will they think? What backlashing label will I receive? Should I even utter a word? Never-the-less, I am compelled for I know that these are some of the same sentiments those in the GLBT community face daily and more. So as brave as many of them have become, so shall I from a Christian perspective as I come to terms with what I have labeled as their process of “Coming In”.

I confess that I have viewed those in the GLBT realm rather harshly as a heterosexual female and Believer in the Gospel of Christ Jesus. My judgement as an imperfect being against another has been the true reflection of hypocrisy. For this I am truly remorseful. I vow…
