Supply Chain Expertise Exists Out There, But Do You Want to Pay for It?

I call attention to a misconception among business reporters and analysts concerning the lack of expertise in the supply chain arena. A recent Wall Street Journal article The Hot New MBA: Supply Chain Management is making the rounds of various Logistics blog circles. Basically, the article tells us that there are not enough experienced logistics and Supply Chain professionals to go around. And that universities are ramping up to offer courses that will help business fill the gap. This, of course, is nonsense.
I personally know at least a dozen people with extensive expertise in the field who are available right now, if someone wanted them. The problem is they all are around my age.
Corporations do not want to pay for what they need.
