eCommerce changes the way warehouses operate: this white paper explains how to go from inefficient discrete picking systems to pocket #technology and high density storage #ecommerce | eGrimesDirect | Scoop.it

This white paper explores the limitations of current e-commerce and omni-channel distribution and order fulfillment systems. In addition, it takes an in-depth look at how to evaluate various logistics concepts coupled with real-life application challenges and introduces NextGen automated handling systems and companion software. This white paper does so with the concept of stocking 1 million SKUs and moving them at rates of 1 million units per day with just 1-hour lead time and minimal labor requirements.

Global Challenge

Global Challenge | eGrimesDirect | Scoop.it
Global Challenge is an online learning platform that enables students to participate and complete a series of specific individual or collaborative team based learning exercises (referred to as Challenges). In individual challenges, students navigate through a number of interactive activities designed to engage and educate simultaneously. In collaborative challenges, students form teams in order to complete project based tasks, and maintain communication through the integration of Cisco’s WebEx Teams.
Teachers can create these individual or collaborative challenges through the online admin authoring portal. In this portal, teachers can create syllabus specific individual or collaborative challenges (including grading outcomes), and assign them to a specific cohort of students.

Learning vs Earning: The number one trend for 2019

Learning vs Earning: The number one trend for 2019 | eGrimesDirect | Scoop.it

The transition from one calendar year to another is when you see all the “trend” articles predicting what are going to be the hot developments to watch in 2019, whether the trends are about learning, training, development, HR or other related fields. Buried within many of these articles is one trend that I think is the most important of all: Learning opportunities are becoming as or more important than just salary as job seekers look for their next place of employment. That’s why I call it learning vs earning. It’s not that money isn’t important – it obviously is – but the desire to continue learning has become much stronger than anyone could have foreseen in previous times.

Simplify and focus

Simplify and focus | eGrimesDirect | Scoop.it

Organizational complexity is strangling innovation, productivity and engagement. It is fogging people’s ability to proactively focus our time and energy on the top strategic priorities. We get sucked into low value, reactive busy work, which contributes to ordinary performance. But we, individually, are also responsible for allowing complexity to drive constant distraction, low focus and low energy. We live highly cluttered lives, have become addicted to checking our phones, are too responsive to interruptions and do not nurture, protect and direct our most productive energy.
