Sherman is currently president of Gold & Domas Research in Austin, Texas, and he serves as Discipline Expert: Supply Chain Management for Trissential, based in Minneapolis. He authored the book, "Supply Chain Transformation: Practical Roadmap to Best Practice Results," which was released by Wiley in October, 2012.
“In today’s increasingly competitive economy, companies that want to be leaders must transform their supply chains in order to achieve operational excellence,” said Sherman. “Dimensional Insight users have already taken an important step to achieve this excellence through business intelligence. I look forward to sharing with them my insights on how to take their use of business intelligence and analytics to the next level.”
