By ·

In a press conference held yesterday, enVista launched the second edition of the highly acclaimed supply chain book, “Supervising on the Line: A Self Help Guide for First Line Supervisors.”

Originally published in 1988, the first edition is widely regarded as a must-have resource for personnel placed in charge of a company’s biggest asset, its labor force.

Authored by labor standards pioneer Gene Gagnon, who passed away in 2005, Gagnon’s son Al Gagnon worked with enVista CEO Jim Barnes on the new release. The two men updated the first version’s anecdotes and examples while maintaining the timeless, common sense tips for managing employees in a distribution environment.

Both Barnes (shown in the photo on the left) and Gagnon (right) shared their insights into the development of the second edition. Signed copies can be purchased at enVista’s booth (Booth 4476) for $12 for one copy, or $10 each for three or more copies. Digital and paperback copies may also be purchased through http://www.amazon.com. A companion training series is also offered.

ProMat 2011 will be held March 21 - 24, 2011 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry.
