Master class Effective Customer Driven S&OP
Today, sales and operations planning (S&OP) is considered as being the key means to execute corporate strategy. A successful S&OP process aligns an organization strategically to execute tactically. But the road to S&OP excellence is often hampered by complexity. For instance, data acquisition and analysis, or process governance, may be difficult to achieve, resulting in the process becoming hard to execute.
Research shows that setting up a successful S&OP often falls short. Planning objectives, timelines and roles & responsibilities might not be clear, resulting in ineffective decision making. In demand planning, statistics are not always exploited to the full extend and in many cases there is lack of focus in incorporating market intelligence and upcoming product portfolio changes into the planning. At the supply side, limited insight into (potential) supply issues & risks as well as poorly differentiated product and service-level requirements, hamper optimal supply chain performance. Also IT tools and skills of people might not be adequately fitting the planning process, limiting efficiency and continuous improvement.
