Today, I launched the The Supply Chain Shaman’s Journal. The Journal will be published quarterly, and will be a collection of posts from the Supply Chain Shaman blog. Each Journal is centered around a theme.
It published today in PDF format, and will be released later as an ePub on the Apple iBookstore, and as a .mobi for Kindles on Amazon. In the meantime it can be downloaded as a .pdf from the Supply Chain Insights Journal page. Using the link, you can also sign up for future issues as they become available.
In January, 2014 the Shaman’s blog will be four-years old. How time flies…
One of the problems with a blog is that as it becomes bigger, it becomes more and more difficult for the reader to access old posts. And, as many of you know, I like to pound a keyboard. I have posted 1-2 articles a week for over four years.
I wanted to make access to the content easier. So, the design of the Journal is meant to enable readers access what I have written here in an easily digestible format.
The inaugural issue focuses on Sales and Operations (S&OP) planning and features 23 select articles on the subject.
The Journal will publish quarterly. Each will be a collection of blog posts on a new theme. The winter edition will feature articles on Supply Chain Organizational Design, and the spring edition will focus on the Metrics that Matter. Even though it is copyrighted, consistent with our mission, it is being released today with social sharing in mind, and under the principle of Open Content research. We just feel that content should not be locked behind a paywall. Read it, share it and enjoy!
