Not Your Average
Supply Chain Consultants

  Let’s be real – most consultants are not worth the effort. They will bury you with documents and pages that will never get implemented. We work to find the right answer for you! (An answer that can be implemented.)

Our History

Beaird was founded in 2013 by David “Dave” Beaird to bring a pragmatic approach to Supply Chain, Operational and Logistics Consulting. Dave firmly believes that two types of leaders exist: Builders and Sustainers. The best Builder in the world will be sub-optimal for a company in sustainment/steady-state mode. Likewise, a Sustainer will be lost and frozen in a rapidly changing environment. Dave saw time and again that companies love to hire Builders, but once the Building is over, the relationships usually soured. Therefore, Dave wanted to provide the market with Builders for transformation/change who would then pass the baton to Sustainers – the longer term, legacy leaders within the organization.

Another critical aspect of our DNA comes from Dave’s time at West Point and as an Artillery Officer in the U.S. Army. He believes very much in Service, Creativity, and Pragmatism. Service, in this case, stems directly from his time as a Fire Support Officer to an Infantry Company at Fort Stewart, GA. The Infantry Captain expected Dave to deliver artillery support he required when he requested it, and since Dave and his units’ were delivering munitions, the timing and location must be perfect every time. This is where Dave honed his skills as a service provider. Just as that Infantry Captain needed his Artillery Support to complete his Maneuver Mission, a General Manager needs his or her Logistics at the right place and time to ensure execution of the Business Plan. Creativity comes from the Academy where, unlike the stereotype, Cadets were taught to be creative and think through items and issues versus being dogmatic and rigid. Finally, Pragmatism came with Dave’s time in Iraq. Simple, easy to execute plans offered far more success than complex, theoretical ones. That’s why Dave will always ask, “How feasible is this?”

At the end of the day, we want things to work!

How We Work

We work through immersion with your teams. A fundamental understanding of not only the stated issue, but also of the interactive dynamics of your team are paramount to determining your very specific solution.

Why We’re Different

Our difference is our approach and our pragmatism. Theories and textbooks are good for a foundation, not an implementable solution. We listen to you; we understand you; then we determine the best direction for you and ensure things happen quickly to make your company better!
