Train Successful Leaders
kreme130   11/26/2015 10:54:36 AM

For reasons beyond my understanding I already found Operations cool when I was still a kid. There was this German television show once a week, that had a 5 min clip about how stuff was made, and I found that fascinating. Nowadays I am so lucky that I train professionals in Operations, Logistics and SC roles. And we discovered that deploying serious games and interaction are the way to attract millennials. That is how they learnt and still learn as a generation, and it is a great approach to get and to keep them involved in learning and training. We are confident this approach will help to let them stay in Supply Chain, luckily so, since we cannot afford to miss them.

A missing demographic!?!

The article was very thoughtful and well written and discussed some key points. I would be remiss not to mention there is a demographic that is missing in the article/conversation/survey. There are many mid-career service members that are transitioning to the private sector that could bring an additional perspective that could be beneficial to companies and to the Logistics & Supply Chain industry.
