“Collaboration — there’s a lot more to it now. It’s just not playing nice with one another in the sandbox. It’s not just giving you the information that I think you need to have. It’s actually working together and providing you information that you actually need and want.”

“What do you want to deliver and what would happen if you did something perhaps in a nonconventional fashion reaching out to a competitor or a supplier or somebody that has no relationship to your company to come up with a new solution in your supply chain to change that output?
“Collaborating isn’t just sharing data. It’s actually getting a mutually agreed benefit at the end of all the work that you do.”
“The definition of collaboration is different to different people, and we’ve just touched the tip of the iceberg. I think women can be very, very instrumental in this space. I think we network and we have those open, honest conversations.”
