former England boss in radical career switch

This one is for the English among you…

While browsing some old posts in one of my usual feeds, I came across Nearshoring and Outsourcing – And the Effect on Lean Manufacturing by Kevin Meyer. The sentence that stopped me dead was part of a blockquote from Assembly Magazine:

“While labor rates and material costs are easy to quantify, many other costs are not,” warns Kevin Keegan, lead director of the Atlantic region communications and electronics practice at Pittiglio Rabin Todd & McGrath (PRTM, Waltham, MA). “These include the somewhat intangible—but very real—costs associated with managing cultural and language barriers, overcoming limited supply chain expertise, and coping with a supply chain rendered far less flexible because of the physical distance between the company and its manufacturing partner.”

Perhaps Keegan should have sorted out his “supply chain” better while he was England manager…
