Supply chain theory in 140 characters

One of the good things about Twitter is that in concentrates the mind. Can you get your thought, your hypothesis, your joke or witticism down to just 140 characters?

As we’ve got deeper and deeper into the ColaLife project a hypothesis has been developing about supply chains. I’ve been trying to get this hypothesis down to 140 characters for a while now and I think I may have done it:

Distribution chain tweet

It might be better for the last ‘the’ to be a ‘that’.

Your thoughts please . . .

    i’m not sure that the definition of supply chains necessarily includes CREATING and SUSTAINING demand. it is commonly accepted that SCM includes both demand chain management and supply chain management. that said, the demand for ORS is not something the colaLife SCM needs to worry about… it is the satisfying of that demand that is the trick.

    sorry… upon reading this sounds more critical than i mean it to be. good start… but i believe more focus on the SUPPLY side is warranted…

    derek.

    I’d use ‘fulfil’ rather than supply – it reads better for me that way.
     
    Keep up the great work.

  3. This is really good…  In Business we call this creating the value system… you can get any commodity /service to anywhere in the world by creating value systems which develops competitive advantage to up and downstream suppliers and customers….
