Chicago, IL., March 5, 2015- The event is designed to provide valuable education for the entire supply chain planning team, from forecasters and demand planners to supply chain executives. Professor Barry Keating from the University of Notre Dame will lead a full day of advanced statistics and forecasting training. S&OP thought leader, Bob Stahl will provide executive coaching on creating a sound S&OP process. Dr. Larry Lapide of MIT will deliver a keynote as well.

“This is the most valuable event we run for our customers all year,” explained Anne Omrod, president & CEO of John Galt Solutions. “If they tried to acquire this type of valuable education from these esteemed industry leaders through multiple events, it would easily cost them three times as much.
