Blogging from 30,000 feet & Thanksgiving
Happy Thanksgiving to all DCVelocity readers! I'm thankful for the technology that allows WiFi to be available to me on my flight home for the long Thanksgiving weekend. Blogging from 30,000 feet is not exactly something I thought I would be doing when I started writing this blog for DCVelocity.
Speaking of technology and Thanksgiving, I think this is a great time to reach out and thank your business partners for helping you and your business. So let me be the first to say "Thank You!" to all of my customers, prospects, business partners and associates. 2011 has been a blur. So as we pause for a few days of giving thanks before the mad rush toward the end of the year, I would encourage supply chain technology providers to reach out and thank their customers and for customers to offer some thanks to their technology vendors as well. We're embracing all kinds of technology as we look for ways to optimize our supply chain operations but it's the people on our project teams working together that really enable us to enjoy the benefits to our businesses that technology brings.
I would also like to say a special "Thank You!" to the team at DCVelocity that does such a great job of bringing supply chain practioners, suppliers, consultants, educators, students and more together in our pursuit of supply chain excellence.
Take a moment, send someone you work with a nice note of thanks. Growing up, we've all heard that saying thank you is simple, it's fast, it's free, it's not done often enough and it's greatly appreciated. A quick call, a short email is all it takes. Thank you!
