We are having some fun on our Supply Chain Expert Community - come join in! For the month of February, we are inviting community members to tell their personal stories of sudden supply chain chaos for a chance to win an Amazon Kindle. And really, who doesn't have a story! What's the craziest, unexpected supply chain event you've ever encountered? Do you remember a time when you thought 'there is no way we're getting out of this?" How about describing a day, where at every turn, you were faced with some crisis? Come share....come vent... come bond! If you aren't already, register as a community member (don't worry, it's fast and free). Once registered, start a new thread on the discussion board (under 'Discuss Supply Chain' navigation button). Post your supply chain tale. During the first week of March 2010, Kinaxis will select the top 25 stories, then community members will vote for the winners. (You can rally members to vote for you, and invite your colleagues to do the same.) The 10 stories with the most votes will win Amazon Kindles! (All the details are here) Have fun!
