I have discussed both Supply Chain Management professionalism and how the surge in remote work will constrict once the pandemic is over. I’ve included the links to the newsletters or blog post for your reference:

Supply Chain Professionalism

There will be NO “New Normal” – WE will be Normal

A couple of weeks ago The Wall Street Journal had an article: How Tim Cook Made Apple His Own.

It’s was very insightful and focused on his relentless drive of operations, which is at the core of professionalism, the one thing they forgot to mention is that Tim is a Supply Chain professional.

  • I love this quote from the Wall STreet Journal article about Tim Cook's relentless attention to detail:

    “The first question is: ‘Joe, how many units did we produce today?’ ‘It was 10,000.’ ‘What was the yield?’ ‘98%.’ You can answer those and then he’d say, ‘Ok, so 98%, explain how the 2% failed?’ You’d think, ‘F—, I don’t know.’ It drives a level of detail so everyone becomes Cook-like,” said Joe O’Sullivan, a former Apple operations executive. He said Mr. Cook’s first meeting with staff the day he arrived in 1998 lasted 11 hours.
