We recognize that we have an opportunity to provide supply chain and operations management perspectives to people in our community outside our traditional business or academic channels.
I am a tinkerer / geek and have attended other Meetups related to such things as 3D printing and the Internet of Things. I think that the Meetup concept works well and I see an opportunity to share and exchange ideas with a wider audience.
I feel that there are a some people out there that do not understand what supply chain and operations management is about and I know we can help. Also there are some startups that need help in this area as well; I know we can help them as well.
I am a volunteer at APICS Toronto. I have been with the chapter for about 9 years and we are looking to find better ways to reach out to the community and share knowledge and experiences in supply chain and operations management.
