Professional Development Meeting

Napoleon's Stomach,  Presented by Lisa Anderson, President, LMA Associates and APICS-Inland Empire

Napoleon famously quipped that an army marches on its stomach. By that he meant that Logistics - the movement of supplies to the army in the field: transport,  ammo, shelter, and particularly food was just as important as battle strategy. In today’s Amazon-impacted world, 24/7 accessibility, immediate deliveries and innovative technologies are commonplace.   Are you and your supply chain and logistics systems and technologies set up to deliver these expectations?  Join us for this interactive discussion on how to evaluate your end-to-end supply chain and put the appropriate changes in place to ensure the ultimate customer experience (without which, nothing else matters) with the maximum speed and efficiency to simultaneously drive bottom line results. 

 About our Speaker: Lisa Anderson
