Onward & Upward

Well, I certainly haven't been keeping up with this blog lately, have I. Been busy, not that that is any excuse.

Among other things, I've been preparing for a trip to Vietnam. I'm going to give a presentation and conduct a workshop in early June.

I'm giving a presentation to Vietnam Supply Chain related to my next book, titled Deliver on Your Promises. It is a view of Business Operations based on my interviews with numerous companies, and my experiences working with a variety of organizations and industries.

And I'll be conducting a workshop at the Logso Conference, a supply chain conference now in its second year. I'm still working on the details, but this session will focus on what to improve and how to improve it, in terms of Business Operations (assuming that you need to improve something).

Since I will be traveling, I have, of course, been searching for airline flights. I've been using Kayak. I like their format and on my iPad 2 I've found that it remembers my last search so I don't have to re-enter everything when I go back to search again. I've used a few of the flight search websites, and some of the airline's own websites, but I've found that I like how ANA (All Nippon Airways) shows their results.

The results are shown in a grid with 3 days before and 3 days after both your departure and return dates to give you a nice snapshot of possibilities. This is how I want to see the results. Since a day or two on either side of your planned date can often make a big difference, this is how all search results should be presented.

OK, more preparation and planning to do, so that's all for now.
