There is a famous Japanese proverb, “None of us are as smart as all of us.”
I work with several dozen CEOs in Manhattan as a chair for Vistage. These are some of the smartest, most successful business executives in the world, and yet I am constantly amazed at what we can accomplish as a peer group working together to help one another. Last week, after the meeting, one CEO who was dealing with a quality issue said he was blown away by the suggestions that he received from his peers on what he should do to resolve the problem. “It all seems obvious now, but I didn’t see it until the group pointed it out to me.” He said afterwards. This is the power of a group of peers that have no other agenda other than helping one another.
In October, at the PARCEL forum in Chicago, we have 8 seats left for the PARCEL Key Management Program. This will be a group of peers in the parcel industry who will be together to help one another tackle their most challenging issues they face in running and growing their operations.
Last year, the collective wisdom of this peer group of experienced parcel and logistics managers came up with 25 actionable ideas for reducing transportation costs. This year we already have the following people on the peer board:
- President of a distribution company
- Manager of global transportation
- Director of logistics
- Director of transportation logistics
- Transportation and logistics sourcing manager
