This April Fools’ Day, rather than tell jokes or do something really silly, I’d like to do something completely different. I’ll simply share eight quotes that relate to inventory management in interesting ways. I offer my interpretation of the quotes in fun little titles above them, but other than that, you can fill in the blanks for yourself and see what these quotes say to you on a personal level.
Sound Business Policy
“We want to turn our inventory faster than our people.”
“The inventory goes down the elevator every night.”
“A bartender is just a pharmacist with a limited inventory.”
“Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.”
Measurement Leads to Improvement
“If you count all your assets you always show a profit.”
“Never walk away from failure. On the contrary, study it carefully and imaginatively for its hidden assets.”
It’s in the Preparation
“Being properly prepared is one of the biggest assets in business.”
Wise Asset Management
“One of the great responsibilities that I have is to manage my assets wisely, so that they create value.”
