Keeping Morale Up In A Downturn
QUESTION: The current economic climate is proving exceptionally challenging. Our firm went through two different layoff announcements last year, albeit both were rather small compared to what we’re all seeing now. We were hoping for a turnaround this year, but in the event that things continued to deteriorate we put contingency plans in place for further cuts at the end of the first quarter. It appears that we now have to implement that plan. This will be our largest round of personnel cuts. Meanwhile, on one of those notorious web sites I read this note following our last layoffs in December: “Well, I have to say, this is no surprise. The associates and

Taking the Army into account, one can see that for years the Army had multiple information systems that did not interact between one another. This created more work for individuals who needed multiple reports from each of the information systems to generate one report for a specific purpose. This lack of interaction between the systems resulted in extensive time lost between information flow from one organization to another. LIW was created in order to eliminate the

The term "supply chain management" entered the public domain when Keith Oliver, a consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton, used it in an interview for the Financial Times in 1982. The term was slow to take hold and the lexicon was slow to change. It gained currency in the mid-1990s, when a flurry of articles and books came out on the subject. In the late 1990s it rose to prominence as a management buzzword, and operations managers began to use it in their titles with increasing regularity.

forwarder is not typically a carrier but is an expert in supply chain management. In other words, a freight forwarder is a "travel agent," for the cargo industry, or a third-party logistics provider. Freight can be booked on a variety of carrier types, including Ships, truck, railroad and aircraft .As a Freight forwarder you are worried of managing the multi-locational operations. It needs to have an integrated modular facility to avoid double entries. Freight forwarding has used manual processes to negotiate and distribute rates, submit airway bill information, verify surcharges and make bookings. Only a fraction of today’s air/sea cargo shipments are booked electronically most are made by telephone calls which leads to inefficiencies resulting in higher costs, shipment delays and data entry errors.

One of the GRDI's recurring themes is the "window of opportunity" for investing in physical retail in developing markets. Ideally, markets pass through four stages of retail development (opening, peaking, declining, and closing) as they evolve from emerging to mature markets, a process that typically spans five to 10 years. The underlying hypothesis is that the retail window opens when the population becomes wealthier, when logistics start improving, when ownership regulations become more friendly to international firms, and when the country's various economic, political, and social risks settle down to acceptable levels.
