In This Episode:
We speak with Gonzalo Cordova, most recently Director of Supply Chain Analytics at Home Depot, who has been focused on data-driven continuous improvement throughout his career, but also has written a book on Individual Development Plans. He shares his thoughts about how supply chain professionals should develop their plans, plus his thoughts on how he got started in supply chain. Gonzalo emphasizes the need for data-driven solutions that can actually be implemented based on understanding real problems and perspectives. He encourages everyone to schedule and prioritize their own continuous professional improvement, to become as nimble as possible to take on the constant changes found within supply chain.
