The world as we know it is in its final days. Find out how and why it all came to be, how and why it is all falling apart. But most of all find out how the world’s end heralds the greatest expansion in American power and security in the history of the Republic.

Leveraging the Links in Your Supply Chain

Major General Vinny Boles (US Army, Ret.)
Author of 4-3-2-1 Leadership

Takeaways: Tips and tool to better optimize your supply chain.

Drawing on his 33 years as a logistician and operations manager of the military’s supply chain at many of its links from the port to the Pentagon, Major General Vinny Boles will discuss the links in your supply chain and walk you through four critical issues that inhibit its optimization:

  • Standards you use
  • Systems you put in place to attain the standards
  • Who is in your charge of your standard and systems
  • The metrics you measure and how you use them

Providing real-world examples of what worked, what didn't work, and why, Boles will lay out a real-world depiction of a supply chain in motion giving you tools you can use to better optimize your supply chain, whether across town or around the globe.
