"Being fluid to a rapidly changing environment is the key to my success in the logistics field. New technology and innovation is making our jobs more efficient and I've had to be adaptable to many new things throughout my career. For me, the most challenging change I had to overcome was around five years ago when the organization that I was working for was bought out by a larger organization. During the transition period, there was a great amount of uncertainty among our entire staff regarding our jobs and what would be changing. Upon first meeting the management team of our new organization, I sought to find out what would be changing so I could understand what that would entail for our day to day jobs. With this knowledge, I could then educate my staff. In the end, our operations underwent some pretty major changes in the tracking software we used, our inventory system and our ordering system. It entailed a significant amount of training time but with an open mind towards growth, the training was a success to get us back up and running on time when go-live under the new systems came."
"For the past ten years, I've been a Field Technician for a large vending company. And even though my technical knowledge and mechanical knowledge are top-notch, I still get thrown for a loop when I take on things I'm not familiar with. A couple of years ago, my company purchased and rolled out new food machines that allowed for extended shelf lives of cold sandwiches. These machines incorporated a new style of condenser that I was unfamiliar with. Knowing that the machines were going to be all over my coverage area, I knew the need was there for me to learn about the condensers, how they worked, what common issues were and how to repair them. I took a few days in our shop to read and train on the condensers. I spent time to disassemble and reassemble them and I also spoke with some of the design engineers from the manufacturer of the condensers. By taking the days to learn, my time in the field was made much more efficient for years to come."
