Supply Chain Shaman

I appreciate Carol and Chad’s work in this area. Oh my! The blog post, What About Them Apples , raised a lot of heated discussion on LinkedIn. Quite the dust-up… Why?

No matter what I write on demand planning, the response is to blindly deploy DDMRP. To address the topic, let me digress.
