“Diversity of skillsets”

March 23, 20141 minute read

“I hear so many companies, both in the US and outside the US – talking about the supply chain talent shortage as a key challenge today. I usually mention to them that there is a need for a diversity of skillsets. There are many roles that require a strong scientific, mathematical, engineering oriented skillset–whereas others require most of the soft skills (big picture thinking, communication skills, negotiations, etc.). There is a place for everyone in this discipline.”
