2019 Resolutions: Lead with Purpose, Buy with Purpose, and Design your Supply Chain for Zero Waste

In this video, I'm highlighting something front of mind during the holiday season...buying with purpose. 

Buying with Purpose is understanding the handshake you making with trading partners upstream in sourcing and procurement, in harvesting and acquisition of raw materials, and delivering the promise you make to customers that they are buying safe, reliable, ethical products. On a personal note, how we buy with purpose in our personal lives is also critical. The holiday season is upon us. Before I buy something new, in all its packaging, I pause and think do I really need this? I think about the option of maybe buying second life goods, and most importantly I think about the signal I’m sending to a global supply chain. My purchase, admittedly of mass-consumption, is signaling a monster machine, of more stuff I – and we – really don’t need.

This is 1 of 3 resolutions for 2019. I’d love to hear your resolutions and am always inspired by the collaborative sharing across my network! Happy holidays and also including a link to some of the other IBM Futurists 2019 resolutions if you’d like to peek ~>https://lnkd.in/epXfXBV
