Supply & Demand Chain Executive is looking for the "7 Deadly Sins of Supply Chain Enablement"

Seen the same mistakes committed time and again in supply chain transformation initiatives? Tell us about it!

Chicago  March 29, 2005  Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine is looking for the a few good sins of supply chain enablement. Seven of them, in fact.

In its April/May issue, Supply & Demand Chain Executive will highlight key best practices of supply chain leaders in the article "Seven Habits of Highly Efficient Supply & Demand Chains."

In conjunction with this feature, the magazine is looking to include a companion piece highlighting the most common and most insidious mistakes and missteps that enterprises make in applying technology to address pain points in their supply chains.

For this article, tentatively titled the "'7 Deadly Sins' of Supply Chain Enablement," the editorial staff at the magazine is seeking input from the supply chain community at large, both from supply chain executives and other practitioners, as well as representatives of the enablement community.

Have you seen the same blunders made time and again during the implementation of supply chain technology at your company, or at your customers? Send us a brief (40-50 words) submission explaining the mistake and, for example, why you believe it is/was so serious and/or prevalent, along with attribution to a particular person (name, title, company).

No need to name the names of those committing the sins, as we're really looking for the blunders that get made time and again so that we can alert our readers to the "classic" errors they should avoid as they lead their own companies (or their clients) through supply chain enablement initiatives.

Our editorial staff will endeavor to sort through the various submissions to narrow the field to the "Deadliest Sins" (the list of seven) and include this list, along with the main feature, in the April/May issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. We also are looking at listing other submissions in a sidebar to accompany the online article, so even if your suggestion doesn't make the "top seven" list, you still have a shot at fame, if not exactly fortune.

If you are interested, you can send your submission to Andrew K. Reese, editor, at [email protected], editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. Deadline for submissions is April 8.

Please read the fine print: Submissions become the property of Supply & Demand Chain Executive; may be edited for grammar, style or length; and may not be included in the online or print article. Submissions will be attributed unless otherwise requested. Assume that any material you submit may be published online and/or in print. We are unable to respond to e-mails requesting information on the likelihood that one submission or another will be published in print and/or online. The April/May issue will appear in early May. Not responsible for e-mails that do not reach their intended destination.
