Ep. 3 - Frits Bisschop: The power of soft skills in building hard assets
My guest today is Frits Bisschop, Managing Director at Districon. Districon is a management consulting firm that specializes on supply chain optimization, logistics facility design and transportation networks. Based in Netherlands, Districon counts many airports, logistics providers and airlines globally as its clients. Frits and I start our conversation with his early career, Districon’s most notable projects, impact of e-Commerce on airport operations, and decision-framework for automating operations. We spend the second half of our discussion on soft aspects of the business, such as tactics for managing stakeholders in complex projects, power of listening and hiring philosophy – aspects that are crucial for success in any environment. Please enjoy my conversation with Frits.
