The Stockdale Paradox & Supplier Portals

I was recently speaking with my colleague Josh Morrison (who heads up our client consulting practice at Lavante) about the state of Supplier Portals. During the conversation I relayed some of the raw commentary I received in the wake of a recent webinar, "Why are there so many Supplier Portals?" In the lead up to that presentation, during the event in the chat box, and immediately following it, I received more commentary based on that material than I had ever previously received from any other presentation topic.
