LISTEN HERE – Foundations Friday 45: Logistics Wins Wars (and Projects)

Key considerations for logistics requests:

  • C – capability being requested (what does it need to do)
  • S – size (equipment, not people)
  • A – amount being requested (people, equipment or supplies)
  • L – location the person, equipment or supplies need to be deployed to
  • T- Resource type (what can the resource do)
  • T – time the person, equipment, supplies or delivery is needed and how long

Thank you for reading this, listening to this week’s episode and sharing with others that may benefit.

Stay safe, wash your hands and Godspeed,

Kevin
