    Supply chain security - a chat with CakeBoxx Technologies' Michael Stolarczyk

    Supply chain security - a chat with CakeBoxx Technologies' Michael Stolarczyk

    I realised recently that I haven't had any episodes of this podcast (58 so far including this one!) dedicated to talking about security - my bad! So then when I recently came across Michael Stolarczyk, SVP at Cakeboxx Technologies, and author of the book Logical Logistics – A Common Sense Primer for your Supply Chain I asked if he'd be interested in coming on the podcast to talk Cakeboxx' security solutions. Michael agreed to join me on the podcast and we had a fascinating look into the world of supply chain security. I learned loads (including that you can non-destructively open the seal on a 40 foot container with a wet towel amongst other fascinating tidbits!).

    Consumer behaviour shifts in the age of coronavirus, and its effects on supply chains - a chat with Richard Howells

    Consumer behaviour shifts in the age of coronavirus, and its effects on supply chains - a chat with Richard Howells

    I was chatting with Richard Howells (@HowellsRichard on Twitter) recently on the topic of how the current coronavirus pandemic is affecting consumer behaviour, and how this is having huge knock-on implications for supply chains. Richard, who leads thought leadership for supply chain at SAP, said that this would make for a great topic for the podcast, so I said "let's do it!" and lo, here we are. We had a wide ranging conversation covering everything from how manufacturing and distribution are being affected, long term price implications for consumers of some of these changes, and what post covid supply chains will look like.

    Supply chain communities and Reddit - a chat with me!!!

    Supply chain communities and Reddit - a chat with me!!!

    I messed up! I had a scheduling snafu which meant I don't have a guest for today's show, so you are stuck with me (!). Now, I know next to nothing about supply chains, so instead I recorded this episode about how I discovered a great supply chain community over on Reddit. It being Reddit, the demographic over there tends to skew younger, but it is an excellent place to check out supply chain related conversations. If you haven't yet been there, I can highly recommend checking it out. You could well find your next employee there. Or solve that supply chain related problem that has been bugging you for a while now. Enjoy.

    Prescriptive analytics - what are they, and why would I want some (!) - a chat with Savi's Dr Heather Krieger

    Prescriptive analytics - what are they, and why would I want some (!) - a chat with Savi's Dr Heather Krieger

    In this the 55th episode of the Digital Supply Chain podcast, and I spoke with Dr Heather Krieger the Principal Data Scientist at Savi Technology. The last episode of the podcast where I chatted with David Vallejo about analytics proved to be very popular, so I thought a follow-up episode on the topic of prescriptive analytics would be of interest. Heather brought me up-to-speed on what prescriptive analytics are, why anyone would want some, and how to go about getting them :) Despite some connectivity issues, we had fun putting this podcast together, I hope you enjoy listening to it.

    Analytics in present, and future supply chains - a chat with David Vallejo

    Analytics in present, and future supply chains - a chat with David Vallejo

    I was chatting with David Vallejo (@sapvallejo on Twitter) recently planning our podcast on The Future of Business Planning in Supply Chain which we published earlier this week when I happened to mention that Reddit user Omkarpalkar had asked me to do a podcast around analytics. David said he'd be happy to talk about analytics seeing as analytics are used a lot in business planning, so I said "Great, let's make a(nother) podcast". We talked about all aspects of analytics in the podcast, including where analytics are headed in future supply chains. We had fun putting this podcast together, I hope you enjoy listening to it. If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn. Audio messages will get played (unless you specifically ask me not to).
