This a transcription of the Business901 podcast that featured Carol Ptak. She is first and foremost a thought leader. You will find in the transcription that Carol has an extensive background in Supply Chain and Management. It was one of my most informative podcasts full of fresh ideas, examples and usable material. Even though it centered around Supply Chain most of the principles can easily be applied in other areas such as operations and even marketing.
