We Need to Talk

Welcome to my blog. This is my first blog…ever! The purpose of my writing here is to offer some insight into what I believe is driving my business, our industry, and the regulatory environments in which we operate. I begin this dialog with more than 20 years of experience as a CE0, Board member and technology change agent in hopes of starting a passionate dialog about the issues we face. My goal is to generate some creative ideas that support innovation and operational success. I invite you to consider the issues I will present and respond to this blog – I want to hear what you have to say!

Those who know me will say that I always speak my mind and, although this tends to make my legal team a little nervous, I wouldn’t change this quality about myself. Anyway, I generally have an opinion on things - okay, okay, I have a strong opinion on everything! - and I'd like to share it here. However, for this blog to be of value it must be honest and interactive. It must be bold. I assure you I will be honest regardless of how irreverent it may seem, but the interaction depends on you.

For now, I leave you with a thought of what’s to come: my vision for the next couple of years is that supply chain management, from a governance, risk and compliance (GRC) perspective, is one of the most important issues to be addressed. I am hopeful we will talk a great deal about it here and that we can share examples of ways to improve the process.
