Implementing a Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) Rudder to Navigate Today’s Turbulent Economic Waters

Date: May 10, 2012
Time: 2:00 pm EST
Cost: Free
Where: From your desktop

Decades of growth in globalization and consumption have driven dramatic changes in companies’ supply chains. Today, these supply chains are more complex and demand-driven. Companies source, make, and sell shorter lifecycle products “anywhere in the world”, requiring longer, more fragmented supply lines. These trends combined with the current uncertain global economy require S&OP processes to be more responsive to demand-supply volatility and complexity. The Demand Management Council at MIT develops the strategies that top companies use to overcome these challenges.

In this free webinar, MIT’s Dr. Larry Lapide, in partnership with John Galt Solutions and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, will discuss the success factors and advanced planning practices that can help companies navigate today’s turbulent business environment. With this knowledge, your business will be ready to turn your planning process into a competitive advantage. This session will cover:

  • S&OP’s evolution from its humble beginnings in the mid-1980s
  • Ways to overcome the organizational challenges that S&OP presents
  • Balancing demand-sensing & shaping and upstream supply-sensing
  • Planning techniques that can be used to mitigate supply chain risks
