Training NATO newcomers on Logistics in NRDC-ITA

Posted on

On 15th of January 2020, was my last time as instructor for the newcomers! It was a pleasure to execute that duty for 5 times during the last 2,5 years for over 130 collegues from 15 countries!

Everytime the 1 hour of discussion about Logistics with the new colleagues in NRDC-ITA was refreshing & productive!

Workshop for Crisis Management in Logistic Operations

Posted on Updated on

On 04 Dec 2017, I facilitated a workshop in NRDC-ITA concerning “Crisis Management in Logistic Operations”. Participants in the workshop were officers from 5 countries and we discussed a great number of topics.


We examined and discussed a lot of aspects concerning Logistics and how to avoid and/or react in events that lead to Crisis. Workshop began with a small portion of theory and continued by examing a scenario of Logistic operations. We explored fields like “Identify Stakeholders in Logistics”, “Planning to avoid events that lead to Crisis”, “How to react efficiently to Crisis in Logistics” e.t.c.


It was like Deja Vu because during December 2016, I facilitated a similar workshop in NRDC-GR concering “Risk Management in Logistic Operations” where we explored planning procedures of how to be proactive in Logistic Operations so as to respond effectivelly to Threats but at the same time to exploit Opportunities.
