In the hierarchy of what we want to find on the internet, Wisdom is the top of the heap.  However, there is not much wisdom found in the internet.

It is our goal to deliver wisdom.  But first, you need knowledge.

In this section of We Are The Practitioners, we cover key topics that every skilled supply chain manager should know and practice.  This is the place to come and learn, to think, to engage.  Our work each day is to create more content of value.  Come back often to see what we have that is new, what is old, and what is evolving. 

Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Book of Proverbs, Chapter 4, Verses 5 & 7

Behaviors for Success

Leadership is an activity, not a subject.

Leadership is something you do. Building a strong organization; developing a consistent and successful routine; communicating with clarity of purpose; maintaining high standards; keeping a capable and loyal support staff. These are all active tasks and responsibilities

Leadership is oft touted as a lofty, ethereal quality: either you have it or you don't--spoken of in reverenced prophecies like a journey of epic measure to be undertaken by the chosen.
But an action is not illusive or mysterious, it is simple and executable. And just like the action of a simple step out the door to begin that journey, the actions of leadership are simple, executable, and very accessible...with diligence and discipline.
 
Looking at successful leaders in the supply chain and logistics community today, and at legendary historic figures such as Winston Churchill--who successfully navigated what is arguably one of the most difficult leadership positions ever held--we see that they all exhibit the same key behaviors and practices in their path to success.
