The August 8 webinar, Inventory Management, will begin at noon, allowing you to create a lunch & learn session in your office.
In this webinar Sid Raisch will help you gain a clearer perspective on inventory. Sid says “Inventory is inherently evil in that without tightly defined and rigorous management and manipulation it always becomes a problem. It must be curated, purchased, valued, edited, displayed, signed, priced, maintained, moved, paid for, financed, marked down, and well … what did I miss? We could probably apply a dozen or so other words.”
Sid Raisch is a consultant, and advocate, for family owned and operated small business. He currently serves as a consultant to The Garden Center Group and is President/CEO of Bower & Branch. Sid has been inventing and reinventing the way things don’t get done into “get it done” strategies that increase profit-ability, market-ability, oper-ability, and owner-ability of garden centers, landscape operations and a few wise suppliers of plants and products. Sid doesn’t have more than 40 years of the same experience. He has invested thirty-eight increasingly effective years dedicated to improving and re-inventing the inter-dependent supply chain. He’s constantly challenging “that’s how we do it”, “we tried that”, and a dozen or so other excuses. Sid knows how to get people to get things done by overcoming underlying attitudes, fears and lacking resources. When you read Sid’s articles or hear Sid talk “put your ears on” and listen up, and get ready to think and implement changes that will take you and your company to new heights and new places.
