Skill Level Intermediate
- Hey there. In case this is the first time we've met, my name is Daniel, but folks call me Mr. Supply Chain because I spent the past few years teaching people all around the world about supply chain management and how to make their businesses run more efficiently. As I'm recording this video though, I'm at home with my family trying to protect all of them from catching this crazy coronavirus and I keep getting calls from reporters asking me about the supply chains for toilet paper and hospital masks and food. This is a moment in time when everyone suddenly is paying a lot of attention to supply chains. So, I've been talking to my friends at LinkedIn Learning trying to figure out what we can do to help all of you who are going through this too. Now, I did my Masters thesis at MIT, looking at how to protect companies from running out of inventory and we thought it might be useful to have a really short simple course to teach everyone about what supply chain management is and how it affects us every day. We're doing this quickly and we're doing it with a hodge-podge of equipment, so I apologize in advance if it seems a bit raw. I know it's not much, but this is our little way of trying to help.
