I just recently saw Bill DuBois' blog post ‘Is Your Supply Chain Glass Half Full?’ It tickled my fancy and a few additional one-liners came to mind:
- Project manager – I know you want to add cranberry juice to your martini glass, but I’ll need to write a change request for that.
- Potential customer – I’ll order that drink if I can talk to 3 other customers who’ll tell me how good it is.
- Supply chain consultant– Tell me about your requirements for filling that glass, and I’ll transform your glass-filling process!
- Research analysts/Thought leaders – You’re at stage 4 of the maturity curve when you can segment all the glasses by fullness (or emptiness), sense how full each glass is with your eyes closed, and collaborate with the bartender to get a refill in real-time.
Hope you enjoyed that! Do you have any other supply chain, “is the glass half full” one liners?
