We need a new way…

Still looking for a better way in supply chains. It’s no secret that most supply chains are ran in a very tough way. Cost cutting is typically the #1 thing managers go to with their supply chain. Oh, they also “go there” when there have been service disruptions. The narrative that supply chain people receive is #1 do it cheaper and #2 do it better. Man, what’s that adage?

You can have it cheap and fast, but not nice
You can have it nice and fast, but not cheap
You can have it cheap and nice, but not fast

Pick any two, right? Why is this so widely accepted but many leaders never got the memo? Oh, right, supply chain screwed it up. If only they had more people at the distribution center…
