Yes you are right. Suplly chain managers thrives in a dynamic work environment. Chnage is happening al around and that includes tools or applications necessary to conduct business. 

I alsow think that it's a must for supply chain managers to educate themselves in these tools. Attending IT workshops forexample.

About your point on email, I totally agree that email isn't always king. Instead, often it results in misunderstandings betweeen people. However, you can't set this feature aside because to keep things documented, this is necessary.

Jane, supply chain manager must have good adaptibility skills. Most remain focused on operational issues which are many by the way in the supply chain. Further, what I have seen in my organization is that IT does not participate in providing these applications proactively. Managers have to follow up and give the name of the application that they need to communicate. In that case, for a manager, for instance, who does not know what Lync is all about, he cannot take benefit from the tool.
