Rancho Cucamonga, CA, March 29, 2016 – The IMA®  Inland Empire Chapter is proud to announce our January Technical Meeting. The next meeting will take place on Thursday April 21st, 2016.

This month we welcome Lisa Anderson, President, LMA Consulting Group. Lisa will be discussing “The Amazon Effect: How to Leverage for Business Success”.

Lisa Anderson, President of LMA Consulting Group, Inc. is known as The Manufacturing Connector (SM) and is a leading expert in bridging the gap between supply chain strategy and execution to dramatically improve service levels, accelerate cash flow and maximize profits.   Lisa has spoken at several industry conferences such as the Global Supply Chain & Logistics Summit and has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, ABC News and Industry Week.   She is Board approved in Supply Chain strategy by SAC, was recognized as the 16th most influential in supply chain management by SAP and recently was named one of the Top 100 Supply Chain bloggers.

Amazon is changing the business landscape. Unlimited variety is assumed, same-day service is the norm, and 24/7 accessibility with easy returns and exchanges is expected. Businesses must rise to the occasion if they wish to compete and survive – let alone thrive. This presentation will feature an interactive discussion on strategies for positioning your company, your department and your career for success in today’s Amazon-impacted world.

Lisa will present primary research on Amazon-like and how it is impacting businesses as well as the key strategies on where and how to make improvements to stay competitive and relevant to customers. Businesses need to create a ‘sweet spot’ of people, processes, plans, profit drivers and priorities to create a customer service edge. 

We’ll discuss strategies to create win-win results for you, your customers and your suppliers, delivering:

  • Dramatically improved service levels
  • Business growth
  • Higher profits and margins
  • Increased cash flow
  • Happier employees
