Season’s Greetings from Lisa Anderson

December 24th, 2017

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish my clients, colleagues, family and friends a happy and healthy holiday season!

 Like this hot chocolate, I hope your holiday is cheerful and filled with family and friends.  As always, our family will be in a whirlwind during the holidays.    

Thank YOU  for another successful year.  You are core to our success. Thanks to my APICS-IE Board of Directors for another great year!  

 

 

 

 

 

And thanks to my ProVisors ONT group of top-notch trusted advisors…. 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m fortunate to have many wonderful people surrounding me:  My Harvey Mudd Executive Roundtable, Univeristy of LaVerne Executive Board/CEO Summit, MCIE executive committee, my global consulting strategy group, my student case competition co-leader   

 

 

 

 

 

and someone who is very integral to my success, Ellen Kane (left) and my two best friends, Sandi & Vicki. 

 

 

 

 

 

The bottom line: I appreciate my clients, colleagues, family and friends!
I look forward to more exciting opportunities, dramatic client results and, most importantly, enjoying more interactions with all of you!

Turning to the New Year, I plan to write a new book on the Coming Power of Manufacturing (with a chapter dedicated to my previous work-in-process book the Amazon Effect) as I’m excited about the vast opportunity for manufacturers and supply chain organizations….

Have a happy, healthy & prosperous 2018!

What are the Best Referrals You’ve Received?

October 5th, 2017

I lead a group of trusted advisors for ProVisors in the Inland Empire, and we celebrated our five year anniversary in September. It was a fun celebration and interesting to see how many long-term members we have, who have gained significant benefit from participating in the group. I very much appreciate my executive committee as they helped create this amazing success. A BIG THANK YOU to Kathy McEntee, Gus Marantidis, James Valmonte, Jan Palmer, Dana Mitchellweiler, Steve Nosenchuck, John Tulac and Mike Kouyoumdjian.

Provisors members sharing their best referral stories

At the anniversary event, we talked about our best referrals, introductions, resources or assistance gained during our tenure in the group. What I thought was quite interesting is the common theme behind the stories – it is more about the intent behind the referral than the referral itself. You might think a referral that turned into $50,000 or $100,000 would be quite valuable (and it is!), however, many folks who have received big referrals talked about the more personally meaningful ones.

For example, one of the stars of our group is Brian Reider (partner with BB&K, a business attorney and outside general counsel) who clearly takes it the extra mile with his referrals. Several folks mentioned stories that relate to Brian, and although I didn’t bring it up (as there were too many great stories to fit into our short meeting), Brian saved the day once by helping my APICS Inland Empire chapter (a non-profit group of supply chain and operations professionals) with someone who signed up for our class who didn’t have the best intentions. We are not attorneys, we are operations gurus. So, we greatly appreciated Brian’s help in resolving the issue so that we didn’t have to make our regular members suffer because of one bad apple.

What stands out in your mind as the most valuable introduction, resource or help provided by your colleagues and contacts? I bet you’ll be surprised by what you come up with. Perhaps we should all give pause to what is truly meaningful to us.

Season’s Greetings

December 24th, 2016

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish my clients, colleagues, family and friends a happy and healthy holiday season!

Although I have ZERO desire to move back to the Chicago area where I grew up, I love snowmen and thought this picture would be a fun way to share holiday spirit.

Which would you be? Sometimes I feel like the one standing on her head; however, I don’t think I’d be able to walk anymore if I tried that!

Thank YOU  for another successful year. I would not be successful without my fabulous family, friends and colleagues. Of course, thank you to my APICS-IE Board of Directors for another great year! We recently enjoyed a holiday party and so I have a picture of several of us.

It was a week of parties…… I also had a great time with a white elephant gift exchange in my ProVisors ONT group (top notch trusted advisors) – such a wonderful group of people and high-quality CPA’s, attorneys, financial gurus and business advisors (let me know if you ever need a referral).

Kash Gokli and I enjoyed a great year with our Harvey Mudd Executive Roundtable group; Ellen Kane and I had our best year yet with a sold out, GLOBAL APICS West Coast Student Case Competition; Wally Brithinee and I had a successful MCIE (Manufacturing Council of the Inland Emprie) Innovation awards program; my ACA Group collaborated successfully to deliver client results and I started/continued several university and mentoring affiliations [joined the University of LaVerne’s Board of Directors for the business program, joined the Pomona College internship program, joined the Drucker School’s women in supply chain mentoring program, helped one of my favorite former clients (Jim Cenname) with Cal State Fullerton mentoring and worked with Norco College’s Logistics advisory board]. 

I had some great clients in 2016 (enjoyable projects and results – what could be better!) and was able to travel a bit. Of course I went to AZ to spend time with my Mom and family and was able to get to NC for my best friend’s daughter’s engagement party. I went to Australia for a strategy session and stayed to enjoy a few weeks in Australia and New Zealand with my other best friends. And, I went to Japan for a board of advisors meeting and enjoyed several days of tours – who could ask for more?

2017

Turning to the New Year, I look forward to the New Year and collaborating with clients to help them achieve even greater levels of success.

I am in AZ to spend Christmas with my family and will help my mom with some jobs around the house (hopefully we are quite productive so she feels like something has been accomplished), and I’ll be with my best friends for New Year’s in Charleston – should be great fun!

Have a happy, healthy & prosperous 2017!
