    • Innovation Paves Way for New Distribution Challenges
      I recently came across an article in Time magazine, The 25 best inventions of 2017. The best inventions ranged from shoes engineered to boost performance, a flavor packed guilt-free ice cream that packs fewer calories, mugs that heat your coffee just right, to glasses that give sight to the blind. It seems like today’s efficient electric cars and smart home technologies were introduced into the mainstream a decade ago.

    • The Art and Science of Inventory Planning and Management – Part II
      Demand planning needs to account for many different scenarios such as the following – you’re selling an $8.00 widget – a customer wants to buy these widgets but decides to go with another vendor because your price is $3.00 higher than a competitor. Or lets says the buyer wants 8 and you only have a quantity of 5 on hand – they may buy the 5 or decide not to buy because you can’t fulfill the total quantity of 8. That extra 3 or 8 widgets that could have been sold but will not be needs to be incorporated into the demand forecast.

    • Distributor Differentiation through Value Added Services – Part 2

      You’ll recall from Part 1 in this two-part blog series, I began sharing insights from the book I partnered with Tom Gale, editor of Modern Distribution Management magazine to write entitled Standout from the Competition. Through extensive primary research, our book examined how distributors across North America differentiated their firms in various market environments.
      Three of the four ways that smaller companies can gain a competitive advantage—Financial, Talent and Technique—were covered Part 1. Now I’ll cover the fourth.  

    • Distributor Differentiation through Value Added Services – Part 1

      In 2003, I partnered with Tom Gale, editor of Modern Distribution Management magazine to write a NAW/DREF book entitled Standout from the Competition .

    • Bringing Excitement Back to Accounts Payable

      A few years back, I was doing a visit with a customer. We were meeting with various departments to review their processes to determine if there was room for improvement. When we got to accounting, a young man walked in and said "Hi, I’m the Lead AP Clerk – I’m bringing Excitement Back to Accounts Payable". To this day I laugh whenever I think of that. Not sure the word "excitement" has ever been used to define Accounts Payable. But maybe it should.
