Supply Chain Leadership Series

In sports and at University of Washington Medical Center, the huddle is an action of a team gathering together to strategize, motivate or celebrate. Also this helps resolve any immediate issues and cascades important information throughout the organization. The supply chain teams are an integral part of the daily huddle and their participation has become increasingly more critical as hospitals move toward just-in-time supply delivery from the central warehouse.
