As we turn the corner into March, we have a whole new set of economic numbers to look forward to – and hopefully they’ll give us good news. The ISM Manufacturing Report on Business will be out on the 1st, ISM-New York Report on Business will be released on the 2nd, and the ISM -Non-Manufacturing Report comes out on the 3rd. The U.S. Jobs Report will be out on Friday.
If you are planning your procurement webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend “The Opportunity for Industry 4.0 is Now” from Supply Chain Now and SAP on March 23rd.
If you haven’t already, sign up for our mailing list to be sure you get my weekly recommendations in your inbox each Monday.
