Can a Virtual Vuvuzela Help Make Your Voice Heard in the Social Media Universe?


It’s a really noisy world we’re living in, and the social media universe is no exception.

Elusive Profits, Expensive Mistakes: the Pitfalls of Overseas Sourcing


Extending supply lines overseas brings new commercial and operational challenges that are far more complex than ever before. Enterprises are exposed to an entirely new universe of costs and liabilities, operations, and resource and management needs.

Amazon’s “Vendor Flex” Supply Chain Innovation


Supply chains are always looking for greater efficiency, and reducing latency is a recurring theme. It was interesting therefore to read a recent Wall Street Journal article by Serena Ng about an ambitious experiment by Amazon, and one that has apparently been ongoing, very quietly, for some 3 years.
