👀I've been fascinated by supply chains since I read See No Evil last year. Now, Miriam Posner peeks behind the curtain to show how SAP is used to manage massive global supply in this New Yorker piece.

🤪On a lighter note, I'm glad to know I'm not the only person messing around in the Google Docs chat section.
