I appreciate all that is done to put together the share group meetings. The meetings are great and getting better. It may be that I am getting more comfortable as a participant but I got so much out of it. The caliber of people in the room is also amazing. A lot of smart people with great ideas that are willing to share and help one another.

Nestle USA’s participation in the Supply Chain Share Group has been extremely helpful. We are able to share learning and ideas across our organization from the meeting minutes. All the participants are actively engaged, come prepared to the meeting, and there are many new ideas generated. Mike does a great job keeping the group focused on covering all the agenda items. And throughout the year, he provides members with many insightful articles about supply chain and retailing trends which many of my colleagues find useful. I would highly recommend any company that wants to use supply chain as a differentiating facet of their business to participate.

I find my Share Group as an outstanding resource to gain insight on a wide range of topics. Best practices, new approaches to old problems, benchmarking initiatives are common topics of discussion. It also has been a helpful education resource in areas not in my immediate accountability. The camaraderie gained with fellow practitioners also enables for insights throughout the year and not just during our bi-annual sessions.

The value and benefits of the Share Group are numerous. Some of the benefits I have seen are Easy access to member community with similar products and experiences that can be used to benchmark current policies or plug into when creating new ones. Our team is currently working on creating new order policies and the group was extremely helpful in letting us know what the industry is doing. This saved countless hours in research. Easy way to monitor and keep current on trends.
