The Power of Inventory

June 2016 - June 2016

Author of the The Power of Inventory. My professional and research experiences have inspired me to write the book. The intent is to introduce and encourage basic concepts and fundamental mindsets that enable companies to leverage new era capabilities. It incorporates over two dozen concepts to follow, it is a process of continuous improvement across all inventory that influences and drives true best in class advantages. The best suggestion is to match these strategies (and others) with the biggest gaps found in the company and then build on the maturity of the area.

The book builds foundations to support concepts like the “Internet of Things” and true optimization strategies by acknowledging their current capabilities and strategically building on them. My research continues on how to best bridge the gaps between current business and consumer capabilities and the advanced technological strategies with further writings to come.
