I am excited to announce that after experimenting with post formats, I have decided to proceed with a new blog format which I think delivers timely information in a succinct and easy to follow structure. Moving forward, the blog will be separated into two sections.
The first section will consist of a single topic which directly relates to supply chain and real estate. Here I will cover, in as depth a manner as necessary, some of the latest trends and technologies I am seeing and hearing about.
The second section will consist of an aggregation of links to information which I have found over the past week to be interesting and thought provoking. The links will be categorized to make navigation simple.
The reason I have decided on this format is two-fold. One, selfishly I am using this blog to learn more about topics pertaining to my everyday business. Therefore, don’t expect too much discussion on the banalities of industrial real estate here. I wouldn’t be honest if I wrote about those.
Secondly, I do care about making this blog accessible and encouraging readers, including myself, to use it as a resource. There are a number of great resources which cover supply chain issues or real estate issues. I want to combine the two effectively.
Since I have blabbered on about the structure of this blog, which adds no value to your day at this point, I thought I would include the section with the past week’s SCRE links below. Enjoy and please let me know your thoughts!
