I found myself in a conversation a couple days ago about supply-chain management.
“Every business has a supply chain,” one person insisted. And failing to manage it is the easiest way to fail in business.
He’s right. Even for solopreneurs who don’t make widgets, supply-chain management counts.
My supply chain is about three feet long: from my brain to my keyboard or pen. But plenty of products (ideas, etc.) still don’t make the journey efficiently or effectively.
As the culture gets accustomed shipping that’s rapidly approaching instant and free, managing the delivery of whatever it is you ship is going to become even more important.
