When it comes to project management, are you a firefighter, or a forecaster?

The term “firefighter” is one you might find when researching project management. It refers to someone who spends all their time putting out fires at work. And figurative workplace fires are like real ones: emergencies, which means there’s no time for long-term planning.

By joining forces with the right contract manufacturer, commodity managers can transition from being firefighters to forecasters, able to see the broader picture and plan ahead.
