Dear all,
 
As many of us learned in high school science class, one of the single greatest scientific events in the history of the world was the publishing of the periodic table of elements in 1869 by Dmitri Mendeleev. While woefully incomplete at the point of its publishing, it revolutionized the way scientists viewed the very building blocks of our universe. The periodic table organized elements according to similar properties so you can identify the characteristics of an element just by looking at its position on the table. It provided a way to show the similarities between unique elements and how those elements would interact when brought together.  It gave us a way to discover new elements to things around us!
 
As Supply Chain professionals, can we  take this historical and theoretical fact and apply it to our industry? As your Atlanta CSCMP Roundtable President, I would answer this question with a resounding yes. What are the elements that make up our supply chains ? Can we not learn from the study  of “others” elements to better predict  how our own supply chains should and do behave? What uncovered elements are there to find that drive untapped value back to our businesses? This calendar year join us as well be diving deeper into the elements that make up our local and global supply chains.
 
I would like to personally invite you to our networking events this calendar year as we learn from industry experts about the elements they have discovered and put into practice within their industry.  
 
I look forward to seeing you all very soon.
 
Best Regards,
Clint Pollard, Atlanta CSCMP Roundtable President PeriodicTable PeriodicTable
