PeopleSoft Gathers Manufacturing and SCM Wherewithal Part Three: The Manufacturing Industry


Even before the mega merger, PeopleSoft had already set it sights on a bigger manufacturing presence. PeopleSoft’s acquisition of mid-to-large ERP system developer J.D.

American Car Makers and Bad Management


In the news, and in a few publications, the Detroit (US) car makers have been blamed for "bad management." I would like to clarify that definition and ask your opinion. But first, my thoughts… An obligation of a business is to respond to customer demands. American customers demanded large SUVs, and gadgets for it that made the SUV a home away from home.

Procurement: A Strategic Lever for Bottom-line Improvement
