Have you ever heard of the Dragon Boat Festival? Somehow I never did… until today.
Apparently the whole country of China basically shuts down for this huge national shindig every June. Something to do with a patriotic Chinese poet who drowned himself when the king wouldn’t heed his warning about an enemy kingdom next door.
Anyhow, I found out about it when my operations manager informed me during our daily meeting that two of our key suppliers just now bothered to tell us we’re going to experience a 2-3 week delay in receiving any further shipments on some of our most popular products as a result of this Dragon Boat Festival.
“What?? You’ve gotta be kidding me!” I think was my first response. But she wasn’t.
Now I’m all for a big party every now and then… but it seriously ticks me off when our suppliers decide to wait until the last minute to tell us about a supply problem. I mean, come on, the Dragon Boat Festival is an ANNUAL event people!
So here’s what I’m going to do about it. We’re going to make one big party even bigger…
