Fast Five
Brought to you by :

Hello Omni Talks Fans! Ever have one of those Elton John circle of life moments? Well, today's newsletter is one of those days for me.

Because on our bookends, we have some great content, just for you, that takes me back to my early days in Planning & Allocation for the Gap, all the way to my last role at Target heading up Store of the Future design.

Up above, we have our most recent podcast interview with Omni Talk 3-Timer, Inna Kuznetzova.

Inna recently left 1010data to become CEO of ToolsGroup, and she stops by to discuss why inventory planning and allocation can be thought of much like a "Waze Map" or a similarly designed system that leverages machine learning to provide real-time updates and insights -- an idea long talked about by supply chain nerds like me, and one that is finally becoming a reality.

While down below, we have my favorite article that I have written all year, all based upon one simple question: What will Black Friday look like in the future?
