If you’re keen to find out more about Supply Chain School, I’ll be taking guess ‘behind the scenes’ at a Webinar soon.  You can register here.  See you there I hope.   Best Regards Rob O’Byrne...

I constantly remind people; our consulting clients and our members at Supply Chain School, that superior performance comes from a really efficient and effective Supply Chain.  And how important it is to measure the right KPIs and set the right goals. And then I realised………I’m not really practicing what I preach!  Because whilst I do all of these things in my businesses, I don’t really apply these principles that well when it comes to me…  Like many middle aged men who have office jobs, I’ve rather let...
