How to have happy customers

As another year comes to a close, we are often reflective of where we are and where we should be. We tend to do that both professionally and personally.

How engaged are your stakeholders?

The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed. This is a cute analogy about the engagement difference of the two animals. It usually makes me smile as I think about it.

The weather and your supply chain

Mother Nature has shown her fury with the 7 feet of snow that has fallen on Buffalo, NY this past week. It is an epic storm that just kept dumping snow on the region. At one point there was 130 miles of highway shutdown for several days. There were tractor trailers stranded and many deliveries that did not occur. You can bet that many supply chains were impacted. Even when the roads did open up again, it was for essential vehicles only. Something tells me that your shipment was probably not considered essential to the National Guard.

Frequently asked questions for Procurement Leaders

Most organizations review their associates every year. Formal feedback is given to the associate and often tied to a merit increase of some kind. Good managers are giving feedback throughout the year so there really should not be any surprises at the annual review time.

Have your suppliers found their way into your comfort zone?

Last year we were home during a snowstorm. We got a fire going in the wood burning stove, had a wonderful chicken dinner with all the fixings and watched a movie. We were definitely in our comfort zone and loving every minute of it.
