In the hierarchy of what we want to find on the internet, Wisdom is the top of the heap. Unfortunately, true wisdom is not easy to find on any specific subject on the internet. The internet is a sea of data, with continents of information. On the high ground of the information continents are the foothills of knowledge, leading to the mountain tops where the wisdom sits.
Think of it this way:
This hierarchy is a logical order, from the most plentiful but the weakest to the rare and powerful. Wisdom is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; the quality of being wise. If you look carefully at this definition of wisdom, you will find missing the words data and information. Wisdom does not require data or information, it requires Knowledge, Experience and Good Judgment.
Our goal is to deliver wisdom. Delivering wisdom is a team effort, between what we do hear and what you do with it. Yes, your effort is required. Yes, we have tons of knowledge, knowledge created over years of experience of actually practicing supply chain management. We share with you on this web site our knowledge and experience. However, we cannot provide you judgment.
Good Judgment is something that you can't find in a book, or in a class, Good Judgment only comes from your own experience of making decisions, both good and bad decisions. While everyone hates mistakes, we learn from our mistakes. The more painful the mistake the harder the lesson. It is the mistakes that help us develop our Good Judgment, the embarrassment and pain of the mistakes a reminder of when we made the wrong decision, thankful most of our mistakes are things that we can see, and we have an opportunity to stop making them.
We are sharing what a good friend calls "a metric s&*t ton of work!" There are over XXX articles to start learning from. As I said, you have to work too.
