Looking for Input

Dear Reader:

I have been writing this blog for the past three years. According to the usage statistics data, as well as comments from friends and colleagues, birnbaumgarment.com has attracted a surprising large following, for which I am very grateful.

However, to date the conversation has been mostly one-way.

I write.    About 6000+ people read.

A blog should be a two-way .

I would like to suggest the following. If you are a student or a professional, I want your input

If you have a question, let me know.  I will answer.

I you have a topic about which you want information or even an opinion, let me know.  I will try to write an article.

Help me with you input.

    Thanks for your investment in writing the blog. I would like to see an address of why sourcing is a strategic area for the buyer. Often there is such a laser-like focus on “who can make this widget” rather than the holistic view that an existing supplier partner could possibly make the widget and thus be more significant in the buyer’s overall supply chain. Any experience you could share or decision-making methods for this type of scenario would be welcome.
    Thanks very much.

    Dear David !

    Glad to hear your proposal; always a bit afraid to ask, knowing your tight schedule….

    Here is something I will like your to see your point of view: You frecunently talked about the big suppliers to macro international factories with capacities in many countries and one buying office for all, like Hong Kong. What do you think of the rest of us (suppliers) small suppliers should do ? Do you think we will shallowed like Walmart has done with all the small retailers in the US? Or do you think we will have hope working with smaller customers that could not reach the minimum of this macro factories ?

    All the best ! Love the blog

      This is a very interesting point, well worth writing about. Let me say at once, the situation is not as bad as you would think.
      Give me one week.

    Skills or new technology , what gives better leverage to a manufacturing country?

      Dear Keerthi:

      The point you raise is extremely relevant, not just to skills v technology, but rather how we look at alternatives in general. Give a week.
