My name is Jitendra Kumar, an accidental Supply Chain Enthusiast but now an ardent devotee of Supply Chain discipline, donning different hats in the form of Observer/Reviewer/Commentator/Writer/Consultant and is always in pursuit of excellence through learning and contributing for the better of this business. Love to share, spread and collaborate on innovative ideas and interesting happenings around the world in the field of Supply Chain.
Please note that “accidental” here is more about exploration rather than a choice thrust upon. Being a Software Technology Professional in initial years of my professional career, to tell you the truth I got very scant idea of Supply Chain and just thought its laborious, boring, lack-luster job of managing non-skilled and semi- skilled workers(sorry for being a bit blunt) and deals in co-coordinating and arranging logistics all the time.
The nirvana(I would say so) happened during my stint of Higher Education where I started exploring and decided to pursue a profession that could really ignite my interest and induce passion in real way. Not to say I am totally inspired by the following words of great Steve Jobs:
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
It’s a matter of chance that Supply Chain is the area that strikes with me and I am as always totally excited to touch new and greater horizon in this space. I started this blog to share my learning, expose my thoughts, refine them through constructive dialogue equally with supply chain experts and the learners of this field who resonates with same interest and inspired to make this world better with best Supply Chains.
Now that you know my intentions , I like to formally introduce myself.
I was born and raised in Bareilly, U.P(India). Completed by Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology from JSS, Noida (India). After a short stint as a Software Engineer at Infosys, I pursued my Master’s Degree in Supply Chain and Operations from NITIE, Mumbai (India). Post that I worked with TCS as Business Analyst in Transportation Practice(Part of Travel, Transportation and Hospitality Vertical).
