I had first met Dr. Nada Sanders several years ago through an industry group called Supply Chain Leaders in Action (SCLA) where we worked together in leadership roles. Since that time, Nada and I have partnered on numerous industry projects and presentations.
Nada is one of the most knowledgeable supply chain professionals I have had the good fortune of knowing. She is a master of technical supply chain topics, has a focus on lean sigma and continuous improvement, is collaborative in approach and is a true visionary in her strategic view of the supply chain industry.
It is for these reasons that I offer my highest of recommendations for Nada as an educator, consultant and business leader.
