Massimo Vitali (MSc Strategy, APM)
Global Supply Chain Project Manager
"I intervene in your Global Trade and Supply Chain Operations"
It all started in a small town in Northern Italy where I had my fist job in import-export for a medical devices supplier for the emergency field - here I scouted different suppliers in the South East Asia region and I obtained the best quotes! Now that I look back it was a fun experience with lots of dynamism and plenty to search on a 1500 pages volumes with thousands of suppliers and a bunch of colourful post to mark the potentials!
MY PROJECTS AROUND THE WORLD..
Let's go to India!
India was not an easy trip and it lasted 2 years but with different challenges and ways of viewing things - it opened my mentality to the variety and differences that exist in the world..and then it was 'live' a real adventure of smells and sounds intertwined with business and colleagues with a unique mix of of cultural differences..Here I worked in the diamond tools industry..

A EUROPEAN SUPPLY CHAIN SOLUTION FOR GLOBAL TRADE & SCM
Where I am today as an entrepreneur
My role as Founder and Product Manager is to develop the infrastructure that I've created from zero to what it is 'today'. I have launched two key solutions in Global Trade Strategy targeted at Small and Medium Enterprises and I intend to keep the direction of this decision as it is pivotal, for me, to learn and understand better how can we improve and learn better how to leverage our distinct advantages.
My professional experience
I am a global supply chain, project management & international trade specialist with a strategic perspective. I managed global supply chain activities to over 20 countries and worked across a variety of organizations (Microsoft, Target, Fresenius Medical Care and others) in India, United Kingdom, Canada and Ireland - where I contributed to the efficiency of operations. I have experience across different industries (over 10 years including 2 years in project management in the energy industry).
My Training experience in International Trade
I am also a professional instructor - I've taught the International Trade Diploma leading to the CITP certification in Canada and advised small and medium organizations with operations challenges.
Master of Science (MS) in Strategic Thinking from the Open University in the U.K. - with an injection of systems and methodologies.
My 'Learning, Advisory & Project Management' Methodology
I integrate different practices and methodologies (with a focus on instructional design, lesson planning and instructional strategies as well as assessment). From an analysis point of view, I target and integrate different methodologies that allow me to provide a better insight to Operations.
My Career Goal (Perfect Vision)
I have re-drawn the boundaries of supply chain by executing a website that reflect my view of the perfect supply chain. This is more than a project for me, and I have put extensive efforts in reconnecting the strategy that is required in supply chain with the more operational and mundane aspects of global operations management.
"During my work at Microsoft European Operations Centre, I have seen first-hand how complicated and challenging it can be to organize a Supply Chain as extensive as Microsoft's network of suppliers, partners and customers."
