@Wade, you make a good point about thinking more broadly about impacts. There are plenty of high-tech examples of unintended consequences when changes were made.  It's good to talk about these things. I'm looking forward to heading to the Responsible Supply Chains Conference conference later this month. I've been asked to moderate a table discussion around supply chains and job creation.  This is one way to raise awareness and get people thinking in new directions. What else do you think the supply chain industry ought to be doing to cure this tunnel vision?

Staying aware of and up-to-date on country-specific regulatory mandates has become a critical part of being a supply chain professional. is lingering in the shadows of the e-commerce marketplace, but this consumer site will likely make a splash in the supply chain world.
As organizations talk about re-shoring, labor costs should only be part of the discussion. Taken as a whole, this is a movement whose time has come.
The biggest secret to the best metrics is to keep it simple. Everything gets better from there.
