22 Year Olds – Focus on Generating Value and Not Shifting it Around

One of the biggest crossroads that I faced a few years ago was whether to shift careers to the finance sector or not. I did my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and Masters in Manufacturing Systems (as explained in my previous blog). I then joined a software firm that specialized in Supply Chain, and my career has since then been in supply chain and related areas. Several of my class mates moved on from supply chain to do an MBA at some top-ranked school and then relocated to New York or San Francisco to be in the financial services sector (investment banking, hedge funds etc).

    My Biggest Supply Chain Mistake: Not to Kick More Ant Hills

    I was having breakfast with a consultant in London on Tuesday, and I was sharing that my recent research was difficult for many technology leaders to support. I lamented that it was difficult to challenge the status quo. His response resonated with me and I thought about it for several days. He said, "Lora, we need people to kick the ant hills." I smiled. On reflection, I think that my biggest mistake in my career is that I have not kicked more ant hills and helped companies look at the supply chain more holistically.
