The supply chain, as its name suggests, is made up of many individual links, so when we talk about how to learn supply chain management, it can be tough to know where to start.
Today we’re taking our “Unpacking” series of posts to the educational aspect of our industry, and how you can get started on a career in the field.

Capacity spent last Friday in the presence of Virgin CEO Richard Branson. Sort of. We took a day to gather 30 members of the staff for a retreat at the Branson owned 90 acre Natirar culinary center in bucolic Peapack, New Jersey. Driving up a long, twisting driveway (by long, it’s about a mile), dodging deer, we arrived at the former carriage house turned restaurant and culinary center.
We nibbled on mini pizzas that we made (sort of) and sat down to a few inspirational and aspirational remarks from CEO Jeff Kaiden. Then, it was on to the main course…. We split into groups to prepare a gourmet repast that included roast pork loin, with a delicious mango salsa, lemon and pesto chicken and other treats.
An afternoon away from the office accomplished several things. The Capacity staff was able to talk and interact away from the pressures of the office (always a good thing) and the splitting up of the staff into different cooking teams enabled people from different departments to get to know each other a little bit better.
It was a great afternoon, a terrific team building exercise. And the food was great. A great end (we hope) to a deep New Jersey winter.
In Capacity LLC’s continuing pursuit of packaging excellence, we drop more stuff off of the roof. This time we drop off glass bottles and scented candles (in bottles). Take a look at how it all works out. Chief Strategy Officer Thom Campbell serves as MC, joined by CEO Jeff Kaiden as the dropper and CFO Arlen Fish as official witness.
