I am most passionate about playing a positive role in helping our students get where they want to go. For most of our graduate students, the time they spend with us is transformational. They create important relationships, gain relevant knowledge and skills, earn a valuable credential and — above all — pursue their dreams and aspirations. It is an honor to be part of that process.
Teaching at The School of Business allows me to impart upon students the wisdom of my mistakes, and for them to more quickly learn the skills that make people in the supply chain industry more successful. I immediately take a great interest in my students’ long term success.
Redefining business means redefining capitalism. I’m a fan of using markets to drive behavior, we just have to be so much more intentional about which behavior we wish to motivate. There’s no time left to lose on this since business is the most powerful lever in society for improving social and environmental conditions.
Actively managing the cash-to-cash cycle in the supply chain requires cutting across multiple functions and processes of a company. Just as in a relay race with passing the baton, flawless handoffs between functions determines if we win or lose this competition. Again, we often assume that having world class tools and processes will make us great, when in fact we’re actually failures at running the business efficiently. This comes from not truly understanding how the company operates from a People, Process and Tool perspective.
