Event Outline

In most cases, businesses are finding that balancing demand and supply is much more difficult than prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The pandemic has made demand planning and forecasting extremely difficult; with many businesses struggling to get the right products in the right place at the right time. However, S&OP can be used to plan effectively during periods of extreme uncertainty, and used to maintain a competitive advantage during normal business conditions.

Take part in our intimate, Digital Round Table Event to benefit from interactive discussions with senior Supply Chain and S&OP leaders.

Discussion Points

  • Given the ongoing challenges of disruption and uncertainty, how have your S&OP processes held up? What elements have proven essential to planning with agility, and which need improvement?
  • Does your organisation see analytics as a strategic enabler for connected planning and decision-making? How are you leveraging advanced analytics today to support your planning processes?
  • Some companies are now moving to an end-to-end or network planning role covering defined geographies, categories/brands or business units. Have you considered similar changes?
  • One of the key benefits of S&OP is driving alignment. How extensively has your organisation driven alignment across functional areas? What opportunities are there to extend further?

What's in it for me?

A great opportunity to learn and share ideas within a group of
like-minded industry peers in an intimate round table environment.
