September 2010: This site
has been in existence since 2000 and it is being completely redone.
At one time it held the #1 rank in Google when searching the term "Supply
Chain." Open innovation techniques will be used to get ideas
from supply chain practitioners and business people throughout the world.
Please feel free to leave ideas at any of the Supply Chain Today social
media websites below.
Origins of SupplyChainToday
SupplyChainToday originated from a list of bookmarks that
were collected in 2000 while I was getting my MBA. SupplyChainToday has
now become one of the top Supply Chain destinations on the
Internet. The websites included on this site are the ones that
we believe quickly add value without a lot of advertisements or
marketing material. SupplyChainToday has seen tremendous
growth because of the collaboration between its readers and
developers of the website. Please continue to send feedback to
continuously improve the information found
Within the site, there are many areas that give
information in bullet point format for quick reference to many
supply chain topics. There are also several reference pages to
other business disciplines such as finance
SupplyChainToday gained popularity quickly so we
decided to include links and news for marketing, finance, web
development and other business disciplines. The supply chain
professional must be up to date on all business functions in order
to better understand the supply chain. Our goal is to make
SupplyChainToday the one stop source for the supply chain
professional. We welcome suggestions on ways to build this
supply chain community.
The left hand side column on SupplyChainToday
provides quick access News resources. The News is broken up
into various categories to allow users an efficient means to news

If this site is informative tell others,
if it is not, send suggestions for improvement
Open innovation often uses "challenges" to get
people focused on a few specific opportunities for improvement.
Here are a few opportunities that would be very helpful to get
suggestions from this community.
- What websites/blogs/forums do you go to for supply chain
information? What makes these sites valuable? Are
there examples of capabilities in other websites you would
like to see in SupplyChainToday?
- How would you like to see LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter
integrated with this website? Do you just want links
back to these social media sites or do you want them embedded
- What would be the best way to display white papers and
other documents created by members of the community?
Should these documents be uploaded by the creator or should
there be a vetting process to determine what is allowed on the
site? Do you have any examples you could share?
- What type of career resources do you want to see on this
site? Do you want a job board? Do you want an area
where you can post resumes?
Looking forward to getting your suggestions. If you
have other ideas for this website please share those as well.
You can share your suggestions in any of the SupplyChainToday
discussion areas or send an email to the address below.
